Also has a ground floor retail stall. It's a very similar project to two others that have gone up on that stretch of Somerville Ave - to Stick's point.
Demolition begun at 300 Somerville Ave. Three-story infill project by Elan Sassoon. Similar design to one he's proposing by new Gilman Square T stop. https://s3.amazonaws.com/ifa.somervillema.gov/documents/planning/Somerville Ave 300 - Plans for June 20 2019-compressed.pdf
In addition to the new public safety station replacing the Cobble Hill shopping plaza, there are at least three Lego-esque buildings like this proposed or under construction a within this area.Pioneers...this side of Somerville doesn’t see much development. I guess it’s pretty close to a future green line stop.

"CALA," nee Powderhouse School, thinks they'll be done for September: https://www.cala.live/, preleasing at $3200/studio (888SF). Pretty expensive for "community living."
For the TLDR version, jump to page 76:"The City released a draft Winter Hill Urban Renewal Plan today, following a year of public meetings, online engagement, and community conversations about the future of the vacant Star Market site. The Plan proposes that the Somerville Redevelopment Authority (SRA) take a 2.8-acre area that includes the Star Market, Walgreens, and two buildings at the corner of Temple St and Broadway for the purpose of creating more green open space, affordable housing, and a mixed-use development. Community members are welcome to submit feedback on the draft to the SRA, who will vote on the approval of the plan no earlier than September"
There would be an attempt to relocate it.plus i love winter hill liquors (though i can't 100% decipher whether it'll be on the chopping block if these development plans go forward).
