Rockland Trust Provides $12 Million to Frazer Capital for 41 Winter Street

Rockland – May 2, 2016 – Rockland Trust today announced it has financed a $12 million transaction for private equity real estate investment firm Frazer Capital. The funding will go towards the purchase of 41 Winter Street, a commercial property located in Boston’s Downtown Crossing. 

The property is an eight-story mixed-use office building, with ground-floor retail. Frazer Capital intends to enhance the building by improving accessibility, refurbishing the interior, and making upgrades to key areas, including the lobby. This marks a continued effort to revitalize one of Boston’s most historic neighborhoods, Downtown Crossing. The project comes at a time when major developments are underway in the neighborhood, including a slew of new retail and restaurants, and the much anticipated residential skyscraper Millennium Tower.

“Rockland Trust is excited to work with Frazer Capital on a project that expands our footprint in a crucial neighborhood undergoing exciting changes in Boston,” said Justin Comeau, Vice President of Commercial Lending at Rockland Trust. “This transaction reflects our support of the continuing growth and development we see across the city and we look forward to moving forward on this project.”
