What's Going On At Lexington/Trapelo Intersection?

Find out what kind of building is being built at the site.

You may have seen it recently -- the steel building girders being erected at the corner of Lexington Street and Trapelo Road and wondered what is being built there.

Well, only half of an answer is available yet. According to Waltham's Acting Building Inspector Patrick Powell, developer and site owner Daniel Yu is constructing a building to eventually house retail and office tenants. However, Powell said no tenants have applied for the site yet. 

City Councilor Robert Logan tweeted that it would be the same building Yu had planned for  Those plans were eventually cancelled.

Forget $tarbucks, how about a REAL coffee shop with local musicians- a nice place to stop and be entertained. A GOOD sushi bar would be really nice too (no super market sushi).

People with lots of ideas, but no one is willing to step up with any money to start these businesses. Its great to have ideas of what we want, but until someone comes along with the capital to start one of these places, its all a pipe dream.

I spoke to the leasing agent for this spot. The rents are pretty darn high even for Waltham... almost 70$ a sq/ft... those are numbers only a bank or a national chain can afford... I dont see any small business going in there.

How about a breakfast joint. Something like the old Pewter Pot ?

Hmm, thanks for The Patch for this timely news update but for sure there must be a lot more more to this story! So much money being poured into that corner without any signed-up lease holders, really?
