The new development proposed for 202 Arsenal Street includes a small market, but which one has not been decided.
Residents asked if it would be a Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods or even a Market Basket. Developers from the Hanover Company and Cresset Development said they do not have a tenant for the site.
The space is about 30,000 sq. ft., so it is not likely to be a full supermarket. Chains such as Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and Market Basket have experience with stores in urban and urban-like areas, like the one proposed for Arsenal Street, developers said at the meeting on Feb. 6.
Parking for the market will be underneath the market, which is just a part of the development that would also include a large apartment complex and some retail space.
