Whitman, MA Coleross James LLC, an entity of Newman Properties, purchased William Waye, a townhouse community, located at 855 Temple St. The purchase price was $7 million and financing was provided by Norwood Bank. The property was purchased directly from Etta Properties LLC, in an off-market transaction.

The location is ideal as it is only a 30 minute commuter train ride into South Station. Our company has been looking to increase our South Shore presence, and this property is a perfect fit. We are continuing our search for additional apartment rental communities and properties from Quincy to Hyannis along the South Shore.”
