Unfortunately nothing lasts in Worcester for very long. Seems many businesses may at first succeed but eventually they have short shelf lives and are not sustainable.
What a shitty hot take. Malls have their own problems, but Worcester has many thriving long-lived businesses that are not malls.

The former mall was a waste, even depressing at the end. I'm glad to see that a new facility will be replacing it, even if it's a amazon distribution center. At least is will be functional if not thriving. The location for that type of facility is perfect, right off the highway and no neighborhoods for the vans to slog through.

Does anyone know what is happening with the parking lot behind the Palladium? About half of it, the side bordering Commercial St., is completely dug up. Is something being built or are they just redoing the lot?

Mission Church getting repurposed for apartments
That seems like an awful place to live at market rate. Mostly first floor in a high traffic area that borders a railway.

Hope it won’t take until 2025. The original completion date was November 2022
they will blame Cpvid-19 for the delay, like everything else. They aren't even finished with the design yet, bidding just ended Sep 9th
