Company Mission

Gravestar was formed in 1994 as a private real estate asset management company for a portfolio of grocery anchored neighborhood shopping centers located primarily in the Boston area.

Gravestar was formed in 1994 as a private asset management company for a portfolio of shopping centers that are anchored by a combination of Star Markets, Shaw’s Supermarkets, Whole Foods Markets, and, in Rhode Island, Dave’s Marketplace. The company’s mission is to manage and develop these assets profitably and responsibly, with a focus on community and environmental benefits.

The properties Gravestar manages comprise one of the premier retail shopping center portfolios in Massachusetts. These destination locations include a variety of national, regional, and local retail stores and services, which meet the needs of working families. The unique offerings of successful independent retailers also bring shoppers to the centers.

Gravestar successfully revitalizes the centers as communities’ needs and shoppers’ demands evolve. Gravestar undertakes these efforts with sensitivity to the communities where the centers are located. The company is committed to hiring locally for services and supplies and to using environmentally sustainable practices in its operations.
