The former theater site (5-7 Middlesex Ave) has been sold to Cresset Group. A small render is in Somerville's Amazon HQ2 proposal.

How are they coming on the 2-storey "pavilion retail" boxes near the T station? Will they open in time for Christmas shopping?

You mean the Caffe Nero building and the soon to be restaurant building? Nero has been open for about a month or so.

Very nice. The only fly in the ointment is the giant parking lot for the Assembly Square Marketplace.

I imagine that the lot will gradually be replaced by similar types of development in the next 8-10 years.

Re: Assembly Row (Assembly Sq Redevelopment) | Assembly Square | Somerville

I think it might take less time than that. It is owned by the same developer as Assembly Square so as long as the current development keeps moving along I could see them trying to start developing the Assembly Square Marketplace in the next 2-5 years.

Re: Assembly Row (Assembly Sq Redevelopment) | Assembly Square | Somerville

So a couple of weeks ago I drove past Assembly Square and it made me sad.

Why is it that we have a housing and affordability crisis, and as soon as you leave downtown Boston theres nothing else like this?

Zoning, fragmented town governments and brown people.

Same reason any TOD is fought tooth and nails in the burbs.

When I saw the 2-story wooden structure, Iit came to mind that there was going to be a freestanding daycare facility. I suspect that that's what we're seeing. Maybe somebody can confirm?
