Construction projects in the Boston area
Federal Realty Investment Trust expects to open as many as 50 outlet stores at the $1.5 billion complex, which is designed to be a mixed-use neighborhood with offices, stores, hundreds of homes, a new MBTA station, and a refurbished park.
Assembly Row officially broke ground in May. Construction of roads and other infrastructure at the 45-acre site has also begun. The company expects to start on the first buildings in early 2013, and signed on three restaurants in September that will be part of the complex.
