Images of The Block
A website that caters to entrepreneurs looking to showcase their offerings in pop-up shops is sharing renderings of what the building planned for 1 South Main St., might look like come early next year.
While the developer had loosely been referring to the development as a “pop-up hamlet,” it now appears that it will be called The Block. This is the plot across from Natick Common that was devastated by fire 2 years ago.
The idea is for artists and retailers to show off their stuff for relatively short money: $1,200-$1,400 a month for 500 sq. ft. “jewel boxes” of space depending on which of two floors and which street the space is located. The developer envisions a rotating cast of characters reserving the space. A courtyard will provide ambiance.
Visit the Popping Up Next site to get a glimpse of what the development might look like, and if you’re interested in getting a space, putting in your request.
