Assembly Row to Bring a Number of New Restaurants to Somerville
Plans are in the works for a large-scale mixed-use complex in the Assembly Square section of Somerville, and it is expected to include restaurants as well as factory outlet stores.
According to The Boston Globe, the developer of the upcoming Assembly Row project (Federal Realty Investment Trust) is hoping to open a number of restaurants and "dozens" of outlet store within the site, which will also have offices, residential space, a new MBTA station, and an upgraded park along the Mystic River. The article mentions that work has already begun at the 45-acre site (roads, infrastructure), with construction on the first buildings likely starting in early 2012.
Over the next several months, Federal Realty plans to start giving the names of the restaurants and other businesses that are looking to come to Assembly Row, according to the Globe.
