CNE Retail

The Centre of New England is being developed for retail, restaurant, hotel, multi-family residential and light industrial uses. The advantages to this end include its sheer size, streamlined local permitting, ease of access and its readiness, which would include the onsite availability of water, sewer and natural gas. It is the only property on which a broad economic development plan including full service hotels, offices, condominiums and apartments as well as a major retail statement (1 million +/- square feet) with entertainment venues can be executed with minimal disruption to the surrounding community. Additional value to the site comes in the form of already negotiated, retail tax incentives and tax treaties to encourage development, including a graduated Real Estate Tax, Personal Property Tax abatement and the forgiveness in perpetuity of Rhode Island’s Wholesale/Retail Inventory Tax.There are a number of land sales and lease transactions either recently completed or nearing finalization: the opening of Randolph Savings Bank in April 2005; the grand opening of Home Depot, May 2005; the grand opening of Super Wal-Mart October 2006; the opening of a Fairfield Inn opening in the Fall of 2006; the construction and leasing of cneretail.jpgtwo 8,500 sq. ft. strips for  Honeydew Donuts, Riccotti’s, Nextel, UPS, Regis Super Cuts, T-Mobile Wireless, Payless Shoe Source, Wicked Good Pizza, Cilantro Grille and Game Stop, all opened the Fall of 2006; the grand opening of a Marriott Residence Inn in the Spring of 2008. Construction has begun  on a recently approved 250,000 sq. ft. open-air, Village Center that will encompass both retail and office and lend itself to the more leisurely type of shopping experience associated with a Lifestyle Center.
