TELL US: What Would You Like to See in NorthWest Park?

There will be a variety of restaurants and retail stores in the project with Wegman's and Kings. What would your choice be to fill one of those slots?

As reported on Burlington Patch this morning, , but there will be a lot of free space for restaurants and retail locations.

According to Nordblom's site, the development will be a 3,200,000 square foot "pedestrian-friendly, amenity-rich, vibrant mixed-use environment," in the area of 2nd, 3rd and 4th Avenues. Also, according to the project web site, there will be a mix of restaurants, some featuring outdoor dining, and retail locations.

However, the specifics of what those restaurants and retail locations will be is still a mystery. Burlington Senior Planner Don Benjamin said the applications by those businesses for Planning Board review are expected within a month or so.

But in the meantime let's make you the developer. If you could choose any restaurant or retail store to fill up NorthWest Park, what would you choose? 

So tell us, if you could pick any business to fill the park, which one would it be? Let us know what you think in the comments section below. Also don't feel limited to just one, fill up the entire park with your dream businesses if you'd like!

I would love to see a series of more local shops and restaurants. Like a Jasper White's Summer Shack, Boston Beer Works, or an Anna's Taqueria. A group of local boutiques showcasing clothes, art, and accessories form local artisans would be a great way to make this a special place to visit and not another vapid strip of the same grouping of stores you can get in any town. Red Lobster in New England...Please do not bring frozen seafood here. There are a lot of local restaurants that could really showcase our local fresh food.

A Vietnamese sub (banh mi) shop. With all of the nearby businesses it would be a popular lunch option and an alternative to the other standard western sub shops in the area.

I would love to see some nice middle-of-the-road affordable stores. Its true the Burlington Mall has priced some shoppers completely out of the market. I agree that Sears is the only store I can afford. The are enough high end stores in Burlington if thats what shoppers want.
