What is Going in the Old Blockbuster Site?

You ask, Patch answers.

People passing the intersection of Cambridge Street and Winn Street have likely noticed the site of the old Blockbusters has seen some recent activity.

A fence has been put up and the ground has been re-leveled.

The work prompoted one Burlington Patch reader to ask what is happening in the lot.

Well, you ask, Patch answers.

According to the Planning Department, the site will be a future branch of TD Bank, complete with a drive-thru.

What do you think? If you could choose what would go in that spot would you choose a bank or something else? Let us know in the comments below.

I agree, hold Mr. Murray’s next project hostage until he starts replacing the old rundown buildings in the center. That’s what we voted for! Is Jimmy’s (the one that used to be at the mall) still looking for a place?

I grew up in and still work in Lexington and Burlington is resembling it more and more with each new bank. I hear the same complaints in Lexington that we are losing our "main streets". I'd love to see some see some small shops and restaurants go in where people might come and stroll instead of hopping from strip mall to strip mall. I agree Burlington offers so much but finding out that spot is going to be another bank is such a let down.

Totally agree with Andrea Tracey. I grew up as a child in Burlington - left for a few years - and have been back for 4 years now. I live near this center shopping plaza and it is a sad site (sight too). The whole Sweet Ginger plaza should have been bull-dozed. While I love the light posts that were selected to run on the border of the Shaw's parking lot, this is where the resemblance to a quaint New England center cease. Please, please, please re-consder another bank. This is NOT what is needed.

Another bank............and people these days have no money. It makes perfect sense. The drive-thru lines of the bank(s) and Dunkin Donuts will merge into one huge mess and back up onto 3A and Winn Street. Doesn't anyhow study the art of Urban Planning anymore?

Oh, come on Board of Selectman....grow some and stop this foolishness. We DONT NEED ANOTHER BANK....try beautifying the town center and stop crippling its potential just to make quick profit!!!
