(Weymouth, MA) –The Commons at SouthField Highlands today reacted to recent the opening of Trotter Road entrance to Route 18 in South Weymouth. The apartment community, currently the largest project at the SouthField mixed-use real estate development, lauded the development as a win for residents who now have easy access to nearby businesses and services in Abington, Rockland and South Weymouth.
"This vital roadway improvement connects residents at The Commons at SouthField with a short ride to Route 18 in South Weymouth, Abington and Rockland,” said Richard J. High, president of John M. Corcoran & Co. LLC. “As the region’s premier transit-oriented community, SouthField provides residents with easy access to everything the South Shore has to offer, so investments like these really make a positive impact.” The Bill Delahunt Parkway, which connects Weymouth Street in Rockland to Shea Memorial Drive, opened in August. Both the parkway and the Trotter Road extension were funded through state and federal grants. Previously, SouthField Highlands' residents were limited to accessing the community via the Shea Memorial Drive entrance on Route 18.
Earlier this year, SouthField celebrated the opening of a “Kiss & Ride” drop-off/pick-up space at the South Weymouth Commuter Rail Station, which added a much-needed access point for people who travel on MBTA Kingston/Plymouth Line to and from Boston. In October, John M. Corcoran & Co. broke ground on construction of the $18.2 million apartment building at the 1,400-acre SouthField development in Weymouth. Construction of 72 new apartment homes, which represents the second phase of The Commons at SouthField Highlands, is expected to be complete during the summer of 2014. Upon completion of the 72-unit residential community, Corcoran’s investment at SouthField is expected to be over $60 million.
