Town also set to get 7-acre parcel of land for LIFE housing in September.
The site work that many Lynnfield residents have noticed at the site of the future Market Street development will continue for about four more months, with building foundations expected to start appearing in the fall. Appearing at Monday night's selectmen's meeting, Ted Tye, managing partner of National Development, reported that workers are clearing and leveling the site and preparing to build the berm that will be located near Walnut Street. "The next four months will be very heavy site work," said Tye, noting that work will also begin on the site's utilities and loop road. The first stage of Market Street at Lynnfield will feature almost 300,000 square feet of prime retail space, about 15,000 square feet of office space, with work on …

Leveling and berm work expected to begin in late April. National Development will also create website in coming weeks to keep citizens apprised of progress.
Site work is expected to begin on the Market Street at Lynnfield project around the end of April, reported National Development Managing Partner Ted Tye at this week's Lynnfield Planning Board meeting. The site work is expected to last for about 4 1/2 months before the first building foundation of the project is laid. The site work will include ground leveling, the construction of a berm not far from Walnut Street, and it will include some blasting, Tye reported at the Tuesday night meeting. The site work will come several months after workers demolished three buildings on the site left over from the days of the Colonial golf course property. "It's a complex project. We will make it as easy as we can and be as professional as you expect us…

Workmen have spent much of the winter disconnecting utilities and removing various materials from three buildings left over from the old Colonial property. With that task wrapped up, this week they began the process of actually taking down the old pro shop, utility shed and restaurant. Thanks to Wally McKenzie for sending in this image of the old restaurant coming down. In the coming months, a Whole Foods market will be going up on this particular spot just off of Route 128 and Walnut Street.

Ted Tye of National Development updated selectmen on project at this week's meeting.
The long-awaited Market Street at Lynnfield project is expected to begin phase 1 construction in 2012, with an eye on having the major tenants in place by the beginning of the 2013 school year. At Monday night's selectmen's meeting, Ted Tye of National Development was on hand to provide town officials with an update on the project. In recent weeks, workers have been removing asbestos, disconnecting utilities and addressing other environmental issues on three old buildings on the former Colonial property - the conference center, club house and maintenance building. With much of this work now complete, Tye indicated that the buildings could start coming down as soon as next week. Other matters in progress at this point include re-routing …

Got a question about an issue or something else in town? Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll do my best to get an answer.
When I'm talking to people around town, one common question that comes up is, "what's happening with the Meadow Walk project?" For much of the year, workers have been laying the groundwork for the development in the area of Walnut and Salem streets with various road and other upgrades. Since at least the summer, motorists on Route 128 have also been able to see a billboard not far from the Colonial property advertising the upcoming project. Lynnfield Patch recently checked in with Ted Tye, managing partner at National Development, to find out what we can expect in the near future as work continues on and around the site. One particularly significant development that could come as early as mid-November is the demolition of the old …
