Worse news for Natick Mall's hoped expansion and more,
A very slow month or so at
hopefully we can get some development going! Looks like Zany Brainy is
about to become Famous Footwear very soon, they recently applied for a
sign. If you know anything else that's happening, send me
your local retail news at the feedback
- Looks like the Natick Mall
two new proponants; Federated Department Stores and the owner of E-Z
Self Storage. In an article from the MWDN, Federated, which is of
course the owner of Macy's, is appealing the Mall Expansions due to an
expected climb in traffic due to the fact that the roadway in front of
their store, and that many people cross this roadway. The E-Z Self
Storage is appealing due to an expected rise in traffic. E-Z Self
Storage's parcel of land borders the Wonder Bread factory.
- The Sherwood Plaza Starbucks
to the MWDN that they will certainly close their Starbucks coffee shop
during construction of the Dick's Sporting Goods. The Dick's Sporting
Goods is expected to open a new two-level store on the former site of
Decathalon USA next summer.
- Finally, Sarkis Sarkisian,
Community Development Director, made some interesting comments in a
recent MWDN article about Trouble
in the Triangle. He's quoted boasting that Framingham got $950,000
from the construction of Home Depot and Jordan's Furniture. But looking
closer, do note that Jordan's Furniture's parking lot and access roads
are in Framingham, and half of the Home Depot site is as well. Heck,
Home Quarters had a phone number with the 872 (Framingham) exchange!
Looks like Framingham is guaranteed $100,000 with the mall project, and
the appeal is expected to allot some more dough.
