Poll: Outlet Stores in Assembly Square
Assembly Square's developers plan to bring up to 50 outlet stores to the area, according to the Boston Globe. Are you psyched or disappointed?
Federal Realty Investment Trust, the firm that's developing Assembly Row, is targeting outlet stores for its retail space, according to the Boston Globe.
The Globe reports as many as 50 outlet stores could come to Assembly Square. It called FRIT's strategy "bold," because outlet shopping centers usually gravitate toward suburban areas like Wrenthem.
Assembly Row's outlet stores would be part of a broader development that includes residential and office space, restaurants, a redesigned riverfront park, a cinema and a new Orange Line T stop, among other things.
