Hudson, MA - November 16, 2015
95 Shawmut Road offers flexible space and central location at I-95/Route 128 and I-93 interchange
Calare Properties, a private, Massachusetts-based investment firm with a focus on industrial real estate, announced today that it has acquired an 84,000 square-foot (sf) industrial/flex building located at 95 Shawmut Road in Canton, MA. Currently the building is 100% leased to five tenants, with a remaining average lease term of 5.5 years.
95 Shawmut Road offers a unique physical layout, allowing for a wide range of easily configured spaces to support the growth needs of current and future tenants. Providing flexible space options for companies in search of warehouse, distribution, and office uses, the asset is equipped with 22-foot clear ceiling heights, 18 dock doors, one drive-in door, and 305 on-site parking spaces. Additionally, the building’s depth of 140’ allows Calare to lease 95 Shawmut Road to accommodate a wide range of tenant sizes.
“Our team at Calare was attracted to the 95 Shawmut Road asset due-in-part to the building’s physical quality and excellent access to major highways,” commented Bryan Blake, President of Calare. “We are constantly working to identify premier acquisition opportunities in the market and creating value for our investors. We are thrilled to add yet another strong investment to our growing portfolio and are confident that the tenant base at 95 Shawmut Road will continue to thrive under our new ownership and management.”
Boasting a premier location directly adjacent to I-95, 95 Shawmut Road also offers close proximity to the I-93 interchange in Canton, MA. Additionally, the property is situated less than one mile from the new, 2,000,000 sf, mixed-use University Station development in Westwood, MA. Access to 95 Shawmut Road will be further enhanced with the upcoming construction of a new off-ramp from I-95 northbound to Dedham Street.
“95 Shawmut Road is a best-in-class asset within its market, and has benefited from an exceptional location, diminished supply of similar product, and an improved infrastructure, as evidenced by its high-quality tenancy,” added Andrew Iglowski, Director of Acquisitions at Calare. “We are confident that the facility will outperform its competitive set throughout all cycles.”
