The long-awaited Stop & Shop on Canal Street in the West End may finally be happening, according to Tom Grillo of the Boston Herald:
“Stop & Shop is expected to break ground this fall on Canal Street near the TD Garden.”
“Trinity Financial recently reached an agreement with Stop & Shop to build a long-awaited Canal Street supermarket on the first two floors of a 12-story apartment building.”
The parcel is in the West End, but nearly abuts the North End, at the far end of the Rose Kennedy Greenway near TD Garden along N. Washington Street. The development will be called “One Canal.”
Last fall, the neighborhood was surprised and not too pleased with Trinity’s consideration of a Target store instead of Stop & Shop next to its existing Archstone Avenir apartment building. All that seems to be history now with Stop & Shop and the developer having come to terms.
While it looks like the project is moving forward, for those residents that started advocating for a supermarket more than 10 years ago, seeing will be believing.
