W/S Development of Massachusetts plans to build 639,000 square feet of retail space, about 125 condominiums and a multiscreen movie theater as large as 80,000 square feet. The conceptual plan has been approved by the Cheshire planning and zoning commission, and the developer is expected to apply for the second and final approval in the next six months, said William Voelker, Cheshire's town planner.

Looks decent. I wonder how many of these will get built around here before Front Street even has a real final design.

well to be fair, this is more like that lifestyle center in Canton, or evergreen walk with a near by subdivision. check out the site plan in the PDF file I attatched

If this development is anything like Evergreen Walk, it will be entirely useless, at least for me. Maybe I'm just not in the target demographic. I'm not a high - end, upscale person (does using a Macbook and shopping at Trader Joe's count as upscale?) . This will probably have more of the same middle age yuppy stores and the usual cookie cutter chain restaurants. At least Westfarms has JcPenny to provide some balance, so it isn't so monolithically expensive. I wonder how all these exclusive "lifestyle" centers will weather the high price of gas and the recession. Will people be able to justify 50$ t shirts and 100$ jeans in this economy?
