Re: Worcester Improvements

I was passing through Worcester yesterday with my girlfriend and we were both struck by how much trash littered the ground of every property. It was the southern part of the city along Cambridge Street. The area was embarrassingly filthy.

Also why was the St Patrick's Day parade held a full week late? The traffic jam it caused was an absolute mess!

At night it seems many of the windows are dark, but this is just my personal observation. Also, there is a Protein House health restaurant slated to open, which has been delayed since last year.

On the other hand, Lakeway Commons in Shrewsbury has a similar price point, but is close to UMass medical and has its own Whole Foods, yoga studios, restaurants and has much lower vacancy.

I think 145 Front Street is in it for the long game, but they may have to bring on some promotional rates soon to be more competitive.
Yes, compared to suburban apartment complexes along Route 9 it's on par. I guess it makes sense, the Route 9 complexes are the top end of the regional rental market, and 145 Front wants to join them. We'll see, but I think it has to be based on regional economic development as opposed to Boston commutes.

Re: Worcester Improvements

That final piece in city square finally has a proposal. This is right by union station too so if your on the framingham worcester line you could take that in too. Theyre adding another platform there as well. Not bad.









“​One CitySquare is a proposed transportation-oriented development centrally located in the heart of Worcester and will further transform this vibrant downtown neighborhood. One CitySquare is part of a $565 million multi-phased project that upon completion will create more than 2.2 million square feet of mixed-use space.”
