Westerly, RI - Washington Trust’s Commercial Real Estate Group recently provided commercial financing to Dedham Retail Realty Ventures for the development of a two-parcel property directly across from Legacy Place, a 600,000 square-foot open air shopping, dining and entertainment destination in Dedham, MA.

The new property includes two retail buildings, totaling approximately 11,500 square feet of space. Tenants include Sprint, Select Comfort, Starbucks and Red Wing shoes. Demand for the properties is strong due to its great visibility and location on a highly trafficked retail corridor.

“This property has a superb location that was instrumental in its leasing momentum,” said Julia Anne M. Slom, Senior Vice President & Team Leader of Washington Trust’s Commercial Real Estate Group. “The plaza serves as a great compliment to surrounding retail development.”
