DEDHAM, MA-Three national retailers have signed on to be part of Legacy Place, a $90-million, 735,000-sf lifestyle center set to be built on 40 acres here at the junction of Routes 1 and 128. Whole Foods Market, the natural and organic grocer, will open its largest New England store in 65,000 sf at the complex, while outdoor gear and apparel retailer LL Bean will open a two-story 30,000-sf location, the firm’s second store in Massachusetts.

Both anchor stores will be joined by women’s clothing and accessory retailer Anthropologie, says David Fleming, corporate marketing director for SR Weiner and Associates, of Chestnut Hill, which is developing the property in a joint venture with National Amusements. “We’re going for upscale tenants, specialty retailers, quality restaurants,” Fleming notes that several other tenants are currently negotiating leases to be part of Legacy Place.

Along with a mix of approximately 70 shops and boutiques, it will feature at least eight restaurants, a 90,000-sf, 16-screen Cinema de Lux, National Amusement’s premium theater brand, along with National Amusements’ new world headquarters, which will be located in 80,000 sf of the property.

Legacy Place, which is set to break ground this fall, will be among the first pedestrian-friendly lifestyle centers to open west of Boston when it is completed in the fall of next year. The project is the second joint venture between SR Weiner and National Amusements, which had earlier collaborated on a project in Millbury, MA that revitalized another aging National Amusements cinema. SR Weiner also developed one of the first lifestyle centers in Massachusetts when it opened the Derby Street Shops in Hingham in 2004.
