Went by the Senior housing being built next to the Natick Mall. Didn't realize they are 62+, that's just silly.

Also what I guess is the hotel has what looks like Fake brick in the lower portion of the building.

So the new hotel at the Natick Mall is going to be branded Residence Inn. They are almost done it looked like. Still don't know why they built a hotel although this is the same people who thought 62+ was a good idea for housing.

That kind of cladding is just begging the kids on the bus to make fun of it by chanting "Freckle face!!! Freckle face!!!" until it spends most of its adult years in therapy.

What's wrong with 62+ for housing? There is a tremendous amount of demand for retirement housing in metrowest. There is also a lack of hotel rooms in the immediate area.

62+ is too old to think they will attract tenants. It needs to be 55+. Maybe Natick forced them to do 62+ but it's just going to end in failure. It's literally next door to a major employer too.

And yes there's a need for more hotel rooms in Boston, but Natick isn't Boston. There isn't much of a hotel room shortage in the area.
