    Worcester Ballpark & Redev

    I don’t understand the allure of minor league baseball, but evidently there is a market and the stadium may be used for other events as well. I’m glad to see they’re adding some interesting amenities to the park. In related news, the Table Talk Pie production facility directly next to the...

    Worcester Ballpark & Redev

    It’s worrisome that this pretty steep 30% cost overrun happened fairly early in the construction process. Makes one think it won’t be the last.

    MBTA Commuter Rail (Operations, Keolis, & Short Term)

    This makes at least six(?) significant derailments for the MBTA this year? Maybe there’s a disgruntled commuter’s blog out there who tracks this. Edit: not broken down for 2019, but over the past five years there have been 43 derailments across the whole system...

    From today. Steel rebar going up and some concrete has been poured.

    Worcester Developments

    Access is pretty easy coming from south going to I-190 N, but when coming from the north you’ll have to loop around W. Boylston street to Gold Star Blvd. There’s room for improvement. A mix of retail, residential, office/medical may be what will work here. Other retail properties Finard owns...

    Worcester Developments

    This looks great and will complement the Ruth’s Chris steak house that is supposed to be opening across the street nicely. This was the view of that corner last year, took a bit longer than expected to get a tenant in there but looks promising.

    Worcester Reactory Biopark

    Based on the layout I’d assume they will be 2-3 story structures, but I have not seen any renderings. The focus is on bio-manufacturing vs r&d so perhaps these structures will be more industrial than your average Cambridge Biogen lab.

    Dire Straits’ Money for Nothing should be playing in the background. At least the animation shows the overall layout.

    Worcester Ballpark & Redev

    Perhaps the design allows for expansion at a later date, looks like there could be seating capacity added under the Jumbotron. I’m not a sports fan here but gather the atmosphere of a game might be better in a pretty packed 10k arena than a 12-15k stadium with lots of empty seats. How many...

    Worcester Ballpark & Redev

    A low rendered, yet informative video on the new ballpark, with more concrete details. The delivery of the narrator reminds of an old-timey Budweiser commercial. Anyways here it is with some screen grabs:

    I don’t know if Spoodles exists anymore. There is deadhorse hill on Main Street which garnered some attention. I have not been so I cannot comment on how good the food is. There is not really a problem with “druggies and/or prostitute(s)” on this part on Main Street, that happens more further...

    Quick update on the Main Street Reimagined project. Sidewalks are mostly done, car lane reconfiguration and bike lanes will have to wait till spring. It’s hard to avoid construction downtown and in the adjacent Canal district. bonus:

    Worcester | Canal District infill/discussion

    Besides the ballpark, Kelley square, and the Worcester Public Market there is quite a bit of peripheral construction going on in this neighborhood. Lots of streets are being repaved and sidewalks renewed and widened. The Worcester Ice Center was opened a year or two ago and hosts the...

    Worcester Kelley Square

    Kelley Square construction is well under way and the traffic is even more chaotic than usual. The Worcester Public Market with local fair and a Wachusett tab room is slated to be opened soon. Upstairs are some 48 “lofts”. Opening date was supposed to be Nov 1, I haven’t heard when it’s actually...

    I haven’t been to the area since last summer but was quite impressed by the scope and the progress made. They’re on a tight schedule with the 2021 season opening date. This is the parcel which is the future site of the baseball stadium On the other side of Madison street, preparations are...

    Regional Rail (RUR) & North-South Rail Link (NSRL)

    Isn’t the Allston project two years off and slated to take eight to ten years? That would push the Framingham/ Worcester line to somewhere in the very late 2020’s.
