Market Basket, Others Confirmed as Waltham Polaroid Site Tenants

Construction on buildings at the complex may begin in 2013.

Several tenants have now been confirmed for the retail/office development at the former Polaroid site, according to an announcement from the mayor's office.

Market Basket, Bonefish Grille, TD Bank, Marshalls, Starbucks, and Jake & Joes (a sports bar and grill) have all been confirmed, according to an announcement from RMD Retail Management & Development, provided to Waltham Patch by the mayor's office.

The former Polaroid site is being developed into a large retail shopping complex.

Construction on the complex will start in late March or April 2013, pending work by NSTAR at the site remaining on schedule, according to the announcement. Developers expect phase one of the build out will partially open by the end of 2013.

Also, developers are seeking fashion and office tenants as well, according to the announcement. 

The Starbucks and TD Bank could have drive-thru permits, which require City Council approval. Permit applications will be submitted soon, according to the announcement. 

In September, the city also named 2Ovens as a possible tenant, but that company was not included in the new list of confirmed stores. Developers plan to announce more tenants in the future.

When the project was owned by Related Companies there were all sorts of plans regarding traffic mitigation, rerouting 128/20/117 exit/entrances, etc. All those agreements were not carried forward with Sam Park et al. They are building by right and any discussion about traffic mitigation only needs to take place in phase 2 or 3.

It isn't more banks, TD Bank is closing their 2nd Av location and moving to the new site.

Neither this story nor the one on Belmont Patch gives a hint at where the Polaroid building was. And I don't see a PDF box (whatever that is) to the right. Why not make it a link right in the story. Probably lots of Belmont residents have no idea where Polaroid was. I would love to have a Market Basket closer than Burlington, but so far its future whereabouts in Waltham are a mystery. . .
