Brimbal Avenue Project May be Stopped by Cost of Developing CEA Land


Voters approved a rezoning of a 3.6-acre parcel of land between Brimbal Avenue and Route 128, in order to develop a redesigned interchange and a new shopping plaza. However, the option might not even be viable due to concerns over and the cost of building the road on the CEA land, an old city landfill.


Developer of Brimbal Avenue Shopping Center Addresses Upcoming Vote

The developer of a planned shopping center on Brimbal Avenue, Steven Cohen (CEA Group), spoke on the topic of the rezoning that is up for a vote in a February 8th special election. 

If the rezoning passes the public vote, Cohen plans to include Whole Foods Market as a tenant in the new shopping center. If the rezoning does not pass, there will still be a shopping center, but with no Whole Foods, which Cohen believes would be too costly to include under that scenario. Cohen notes that an increase in local traffic is coming in either case. Opponents to the rezoning have gathered over 3,500 signatures.
