Cole Hersee

As part of a strategic assemblage of nearly 12 acres of land near the intersection of Dorchester Avenue and Old Colony Avenue in South Boston, National Development purchased the existing Cole Hersee buildings totaling approximately 135,000 SF with the intent of developing a restaurant/retail hub. In concert with the site’s makerspace history, National Development curated a mix of local operators including popular bakery Tatte, who leased space for their regional commissary, corporate office and a retail store; Castle Island Brewery, a local craft brewer and retail outlet; Freight Farms, the world’s leading manufacturer of container farming technology; and B/SPOKE Studios who opened a new socially-distanced spin concept called The Warehouse in the fall of 2020. These new retailers join Rock Spot, a popular indoor climbing gym as well as several other existing tenants.
