With Black Friday quickly approaching and the final stretch before Christmas after that, the South Shore Plaza will be one of the busiest places around.
You might wonder, while shopping: I know how much the stuff in my basket is worth, but what about the mall itself?
Coincidentally, the Plaza – at 250 Granite St. in Braintree – is valued at $250 million, according to records kept by Patriot Properties, which stores data from the Board of Assessors on all real estate in Braintree, along with a number of other towns.
The 2012 assessments puts the building value at $195 million and the land at $54 million, with "special features" adding up to another $1.7 million. The site is nearly 112 acres.
