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.

  1. The people in the Beacon Park neighborhood, which is directly across the street from the proposed market, are concerned that their relatively quiet neighborhood will become a conduit for customers and turn their neighborhood into a traffic nightmare.
