Once the seed was planted, we knew it was only a matter of time before Widett Circle turned into hot real estate. If the name of Widett Circle – aka – Midtown is ringing a bell, it is no doubt from the Boston 2024 Olympic bid. For the last 100 years, Widett Circle – the area between Southie and the Southend – has been made up of two dozen meat and seafood wholesalers. No one really gave it a second thought until the Olympic bid pointed out this valuable piece of property.
Well, the Boston Globe reported on Tuesday that The New Boston Food Market is up for sale which most likely will cause a bidding war among developers. The vendors that make up The New Boston Food Market will then decide whether to sell or move to a new location.
What does that mean for our neighborhood? More construction and potentially a new neighborhood – maybe Midtown?
