Our roundup of the latest Natick, Mass., business news:
Keeping an eye on Beach House volleyball facility
The Tech Circle area of Natick continues to be the location of a fair number of tech firms. But it’s also a rather sporty place with the Longfellow Health Club, Frozen Ropes baseball & softball training, and CrossFit New England also calling this street home.
Next up is Beach House, an indoor volleyball complex that’s already had at least 50 dump truckloads of sand delivered at 0 Tech Circle. When we swung by one morning last week, it looked as though workers were busy getting the place ready for action.
The volleyball venture has been in the works for at least a couple of years.
The business has a murky online presence, though has been updating its Facebook page with pictures of its courts coming to life in recent months.
One good sign is that Massachusetts high schools have begun playing hardcourt volleyball under COVID-19 rules, so it remains to be seen what the state will allow at a facility like this, and when.
We’ve reached out to the business for an update, and will share what we learn if we hear back. Feel free to pass along any news you might have on this project, which we believe last appeared before Natick’s Planning Board in August: email@example.com

Boyd’s readying new pumps

One South Main Street project continuances continue
The project, on the site of the July 2019 fire that devastated businesses on South Main Street in Natick Center, “consists of the construction of a new 15,055 sq. ft. two-story structure with retail use on the first floor and seven residential units on the second floor as well as other site improvements,” according to the Planning Board’s description.
Progress on the project’s site plan and permitting through the Planning Board process continues to slog, with several continuances issued of late. The latest delays a project review until Nov. 4. Sorting out insurance questions was a factor in the previous continuance.
