Retail and development has picked up in New Center significantly over the past couple years, with the Fisher Building adding multiple retail tenants, renovated storefronts at Woodward Avenue and the Boulevard, and development taking shape near Tech Town. We’ve also seen a lot of real estate activity in the area between New Center and historic Boston-Edison. Will we see more storefronts in that area activated in the near future?
This new listing is located on 2nd Avenue near Philadelphia Street. The building itself is 2,000 square feet and sits on a 10,000-square-foot lot. A rendering provided by listing agent James Tumey suggests a cafe or market could move in. Could the right idea perhaps kickstart more retail or commercial activity in the neighborhood. It’s listed for $279,000. What would you like to see take shape in this building and what might be beneficial to the surrounding neighborhood?
