Marlborough officials hopeful about TJX proposal

Marlborough – Last year local officials were stunned by the news that Fidelity Investments was planning on vacating their Marlborough campus by the end of 2012 and relocating 1,100 employees to Rhode Island or New Hampshire. Now, with the announcement that the TJX Companies, Inc. (TJX) has decided to purchase two of the soon to be vacant Fidelity buildings, officials are hopeful that the city will once again be on the upswing. Sherry Lang, senior vice president of global communications for TJX, said in a March 8 press release that the company was, "pleased to have signed a purchase and sale agreement for two buildings located at 300 and 400 Puritan Way in Marlborough."

A vote of confidence

Marlborough – When Fidelity Investments left the city of Marlborough in 2011, it was a huge blow to the local economy, rippling down to many of the smaller businesses in the city. But over the past six years, the city has seen a resurgence, attracting large companies such as TJX, Quest Diagnostics, and GE Healthcare, as well as the new large-scale multi-use development, Apex Center. The force behind much of the city’s growth can certainly be attributed to its chief executive officer, Arthur Vigeant, who has made economic development a top priority.
