Construction continues at Bedford Marketplace. Above is the new building going up that faces Great Road. The left front of the building is expected to house a Bank with a drive thru in the rear. Once this building has been completed and tenants have moved in, the old building that housed Cafe Luigi's, Bank of America and other tenants will be demolished.
The new 17,000 square foot building to the left of Marshall's. The section to the left of the telephone pole will be Red Heat Tavern which is expected to open this fall. The right section which is just under 12,000 square feet, appears to still be under negotiation with a prospective tenant (unconfirmed reports have indicated this may be a pet store). While the new buildings are all one story, they are much higher than the existing buildings.
As part of the renovation to help improve traffic flow, a left turn lane was just added (view is heading east on Great Road). The traffic signal still needs to be updated along with the no left turn sign on the traffic pole.
Above is a general overview of how the shopping center will look once renovations have been completed. The center building that currently houses Lincoln Liquors will be rebuilt closer to Great Road with the Liquor store being moved to the back of the building. In addition, a Learning Express Toys store has been proposed for the front of the building and is currently up for review by the zoning board of appeals.
