Worcester Sand & Gravel sells Shrewsbury land for $7M

Worcester Sand & Gravel has sold its Shrewsbury property for $7.45 million.

The buyer is a limited liability corporation registered to the address of GFI Partners, a Boston real estate consulting firm. The deal includes sites on Burokas, Clinton, Holden, and Maplehurst streets in an area between Shrewsbury High School and Route 70.

Worcester Sand & Gravel is continuing its operations at the 113-acre site following the sale, which closed Jan. 28.

The buyer of the Worcester Sand & Gravel site, 160 Holden Street LLC, is also registered to the address and president of Boston's Matteson Cos., a real estate investment firm.

The Shrewsbury site was last assessed by the Town of Shrewsbury at $3.8 million.

GFI Partners has also been connected to other notable Central Massachusetts sales in the last few months. Those include Simonds Saw's $5.6-million sale of its 135 Intervale Road facility in Fitchburg last October and a 168,000-square-foot manufacturing facility at 5 Cudworth Road in Webster for nearly $6 million last July, both of which a GFI-connected entity bought.

GFI also sold two major area assets, including a Quiet Logistics facility in Devens, the former AMSC headquarters, for $36.7 million to Morgan Stanley Real Estate Advisor last May, and a 147,000-square-foot distribution facility in West Boylston, which was sold last July to a Connecticut investment firm, Wheelock Street Capital, for $10.6 million.

I am related to Trottos of Wocester Sand. I know we own land. My mentally disabled brother signed a quick claim because they paid him $500. Great story for a real journalist.
