In recent months, various high-profile companies have announced that they will be opening locations later this year at MarketStreet Lynnfield. The development is near Pleasure Island Road in Wakefield and the Sheraton Colonial.
Local residents have known that Whole Foods, Davio's, Legal C Bar, The Yard House, King's and J.P. Licks Ice Cream will be among the familiar brands present when Lynnfield's largest-ever commercial and residential development opens later this year.
In a visit to the MarketStreet Lynnfield construction site this week, Ted Tye, managing partner of National Development, provided a rundown of some more things we can expect in the coming months - including a much more in-depth list of the commercial tenants for Phase 1 of MarketStreet Lynnfield.
More information about the development, as well as a photo gallery, will appear on this website in the coming days.
"We've really looked for some unique tenants. We want tenants to have a little bit of local flavor," said Tye, going on to report that "some really exciting names" will also be announced over the next 90 days. Tye also indicated that the list below represents about a third of the total number of tenants expected to have a presence at MarketStreet Lynnfield.
