Growth Industries and Opportunities

There are a range of business development opportunities around town in a variety of markets. Diversifying the businesses in Foxborough will attract jobs and visitors to the community. One of the key goals of the EDC is to draw restaurants and service businesses to the Downtown area, as well as to attract high quality development to Route 1. Below are some highlights of opportunities in town:
  • Office and R&D on Route 1 by Gillette Stadium and Patriot Place (Note:  In 2018 the Town adopted business-friendly zoning for the Route 1 corridor.  Building heights up to 70 feet by right/150 feet by special permit are allowed.  R&D, hotels and many other uses are permitted by right.  Quarter Point @ Patriot Place
  • Vacancies and development opportunities for housing, offices, retail, and storefronts at Chestnut Green (former Foxborough State Hospital).
  • Retail or food service store fronts at Forbes Crossing, Foxborough Plaza, and the rest of the Route 140/Foxborough Boulevard area.
