Westerly, RI – Washington Trust’s Commercial Real Estate Group recently provided $2.82 million to AKM Corp. for the refinancing of an existing Rite Aid Pharmacy located in Reading, MA. Located at 15 Bolton Street in Reading, about 12 miles north of Boston, the property includes a 13,426 square-foot building on a 1.5-acre parcel of land. Built in 1997, the building underwent renovations in 2008 to accommodate Rite Aid Pharmacy, the third largest drugstore chain in the US, which leases the property to this day.

“We were very pleased to expand our relationship with United Capital with this well located property,” said Julia Anne M. Slom, Senior Vice President & Team Leader of Washington Trust’s Commercial Real Estate Group. “The location is especially strong given that this Rite Aid has the only drive through pharmacy in Reading.”

AKM Corp. is a single asset entity and wholly owned subsidiary of United Capital Corporation, a real estate investment and management company out of Great Neck, NY.
