MARCH 2014

March 2014 is a milestone month for 1265 with the official signing of the Market Basket Grocery Store lease!  With the anchor tenant locked in we are in the process of developing a master schedule to prepare for the grand opening of the site and other tenancies.  The interior fit-up work of the Market Basket is underway as well as the storefront facade. Delivery of the Market Basket space is slated for spring 2014.  1265 has also committed to constructing the office building building core and shell.  Demolition of the brick and block on the exterior of the existing building is underway.  Modeled after the 3M office building in Milan Italy, the new office building will be a world class building incomparable to any other along rte 128.

FEBRUARY 2014

February 2014 was an exciting month at 1265 Main!  The interior construction of Marshalls is progressing to schedule.  With any luck, we will be shopping for back to school apparel at Marshalls 1265 this August!  The exterior of the Market Basket building is also progressing.  However, freezing cold temperatures  has limited the amount of masonry that can be competently completed.

We are excited to have completed all of the structural work for Jake and Joes and equally excited to have  the selection of the brick material behind us.  Exterior sheathing and rough openings for windows are complete… soon the building will be tight to the weather!  During the next two months we will focus on installing the masonry for the Jake and Joe’s building with the glazing to follow.  See at you at Jake and Joes for the SuperBowl 2015.  Go Pats!

Other notable activities include the issuance of an address for the Starbucks building.  Next month we will apply for a building permit and are scheduled to have the shell of the building complete early summer 2014.  Some selective demolition has commenced on the office building, as ownership considers building out the core and shell of the building to attract a world-class tenant for this world class office space and development.

DECEMBER 2013

Construction on the core and shell of the 130,000 SF retail building continues throughout the month of December. The installation of masonry on the facade is now the central focus of construction activities on the building.  The interior plans for the Marshall’s space are near 100% complete and construction on the interior fit-up is projected to start in February 2014.  Detailed drawings for the Starbucks tenant are now underway and construction is projected to start in the next few months.  Construction on the Jake & Joe’s Sports Bar continues as the central focus of that building is to install all utilities into the space and finish up all structural framing during the month of December.  Site work continues to the north of the site as the NSTAR easement is brought to finish grade.
