Around this time next year, the first tenants at the MarketStreet at Lynnfield development, including Whole Foods, are expected to be open for business. Those who have driven by the site in recent days may have noticed that the structure of what will become the Whole Foods has begun to take shape, as noted in this photo.
Also, National Development's MarketStreetConstruction.com website continues to provide updates on other details of the project. For example, earlier this week the company reported that trees and shrubs will be planted on the berm near the Walnut Street entrance starting next week.
"Our landscape architect has travelled to Pennsylvania to select tress to be planted along the Walnut Street entrance and berm. The berm has been hydro-seeded and grass has begun the grow," reported the website, adding that some of the work will be finished in spring.
In a separate note, National Development also reported on the website that most of the main street for the site is built, but still unpaved. The Whole Foods parking lot is also now reportedly paved and plans are in place to pave King Rail Drive, the site's loop road, by the end of the year.
