Re: MassDevelopment Real Estate Services Award – Medfield State Hospital Reuse
Dear Mr. Milano:
We are pleased to inform you that the Town of Medfield’s application for technical assistance through MassDevelopment’s Real Estate Services Call for Proposals has been accepted for the FY2021 funding round for a budget not to exceed $50,000. Given this is a site-specific project, the repayment clause will apply in the Memorandum of Agreement between the Town of Medfield and MassDevelopment.
This year’s overwhelming level of interest made the funding round highly competitive. Forty communities applied with a combined request of $1.5M in technical assistance. Ultimately, 9 projects were selected to move forward in FY2021.
One of MassDevelopment’s Real Estate project managers will reach out to you in the next few weeks to discuss project start-up and next steps. If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to reach out to Christine Madore, Vice President, Real Estate Services at cmadore@massdevelopment.com or 617-330-2053.
Cassandra McKenzie
Executive Vice President, Real Estate
