Medfield and Westboro State Hospitals were on about the same time trajectory in terms of their sale by the state to the respective communities, with Westboro’s deal starting out a few months ahead of us. We also shared the same state crafted purchase model and valuation/price – they got better value, because their site is in a prime commercial location, right off Rte. 9. However, it looks like Westboro will get to market with its site long before we will, as I am guessing we are still at least a year away. I am also recalling that the WSH site was much more than 37 acres, so they must be selling parcels at a time.
