FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The owners of the New England Patriots want to expand the shopping plaza next to the team's stadium.
A proposal by the Kraft Group unveiled Thursday before the Foxborough Planning Board calls for a 125- to 150-room hotel, a 14,500-square-foot retail store and a 4,500-square-foot "quick serve" restaurant.
The Sun Chronicle reports that Dan Krantz, the company's director of site development, outlined the proposal in an informal "courtesy" visit with the planning board.
He said the Kraft Group's development arm will file formal site plans with the planning board in 30 to 60 days.
The project on Route 1 would be installed on a six-acre section of Patriot Place, just south of an existing hotel.
One resident expressed concern about the town's ability to supply water to a second hotel.
