Newington, CT Grossman Development Group (GDG), in partnership with Callahan, Inc. and Long Wharf Capital, has launched construction at Meadow Commons, a 24-acre mixed-use destination. Washington Trust is supplying the debt for the retail portion of the development.
In addition to 78,000 s/f of retail, the site includes 269 units of new luxury housing accessible to Berlin Tpke. Anchored by a new national grocer, the property will deliver several highly desirable retail and restaurant concepts to the area and create a shopping and dining experience.
In addition to the grocer, confirmed retail leases include:
- Sally’s aPizza: authentic New Haven-style pizza.
- Shake Shack: American fast-casual chain based in New York City.
- Crumbl: the fastest-growing cookie company in the nation.
- PJ’s Coffee: first Connecticut location for this New Orleans café favorite.
“Meadow Commons is a reflection of our overall strategy to focus on experiential and essential retail, curating the best of local dining and services with coveted national brands in a grocery-anchored setting,” said Jeremy Grossman, principal of Grossman Development Group. “This is a prime site combining new housing with fresh retail concepts to create synergies and a fantastic consumer experience.”
Fifteen minutes from downtown Hartford via the Berlin Tpke. and eight minutes from I-91, this property is creating a destination for the town and surrounding communities, adding jobs and in-demand resources.
The housing, under development by Criterion Development, will feature a fitness center, indoor garden, and clubhouse.
The first retail is expected to open late summer of 2023.
