A sign for contractor JJ Welch has been added to the chain-link fence decorations at 1 South Main St. in Natick Center along with the artsy hearts and promotions for a planned retail development dubbed The Block. This is the space where a fire devastated businesses in 2019.
A permit for putting in a foundation was issued in July and contractor activity has been spotted amidst the weeds.
Plans for the space have morphed from mixed residential and retail use to just retail, with spaces bigger than initially envisioned.
“Currently under development, this innovative project will host a rotating mix of dynamic local art and retail, emerging brands, food and drink, when it makes its debut,” The Block’s website teases.
Here’s the latest rendering shared by The Block on its website and social media.
