Sorry, the dysfunctional Central Record website doesn't have the article (or any articles for that matter) online, but there's an article in the Sept 28 edition which says construction will begin this fall on the shopping center at Eayrestown Rd and Rt 70 in Medford. It says that all the approvals are now in place.
The shopping centers and the new homes are scheduled to be completed by Spring 2008. Well... there goes the neighborhood. I can just picture the traffic jams on Rt 70 and all the little roads which cross it. And of course this should serve as a magnet for further development of that area. I'm glad I moved away in time to miss all this "progress".Officials for Freedman Cohen last week announced that the following tenants are signed on at the developments, which are located on both sides of Route 70 near Eayrestown Road: Starbucks, Best Buy, Home Depot, Target, Ross, Petco, Sleepy's, the Hair CUttery, Staples, Cingular Wireless and restaurants Applebee, Chick-fil-A, Cosi, Vincenzo's and the upscale steakhouse Herman's Prime.
