Boston area bargain shoppers rejoice

The Boston Globe has an article in today’s business section about a significant mixed use development in Somerville to rejuvenate Assembly Row.  Plans for this ‘mixed use neighborhood’ include condos, a hotel, a new IKEA, a new orange line metro station and more than 30 retail outlet stores. Typically outlet stores are not found so close to a downtown location, and this would be the closest concentration of outlets in Boston just a few miles from the heart of Boston.

According to the Globe article, Federal Realty has begun building roads and other infrastructure at the 45-acre site. They plan to begin construction on the first buildings early next year: a pair of apartment blocks with 450 units and street-level stores, being developed by AvalonBay Communities Inc.
