Behind The Scenes Tour at Cornerstone

Patch was invited to take a look around on site last week, here's what we saw.

 

If you've been reading Westford Patch over the past few months, or have been driving anywhere near Minot's Corner for that matter, you've seen all the construction down at Cornerstone Square, at least parts of it.

Here's a look at some things on the site itself we got to see during a tour last week.

I do that now each Tuesday afternoon for everyone's beloved Flea Market in the center of town.

You can wait 20 minutes for locally grown produce or a Market Basket apple.

No, I wait 20 minutes to get up Boston Road to go home. I am not going to buy any produce, handbags, wine, pictures etc. When i go to MB, is is not at 5:30PM. I wait for the rush to be over with.

Prospective tenant here... Im just wondering how receptive you all are to the small businesses that are going to be moving into the square. I know it might seem like a burden to some but remember that by having this, gives people an opportunity to create a business and to potentially become successful. When the sqaure is filled up it is only going to bring in more tax dollars for the town. However the success depends on the how receptive all of the local townspeople are to it. Cornerstone square gives someone like myself a big opportunity to make an enterence into a nice community that could possibly be an up and coming suburb... Look at Wellesley and Sudbury for example they weren't always a "rich" town but having businesses and school is what will propel Westford into its next generation. I feel that Westford has a step up from those towns because of how easy it is to get in and out of it via 495, which will help C.S.S. be a regional player in the shopping world. If you look at retail as whole, shopping malls like, Burlington, Natick, Emeralds sqaure, South shore and North shore plaza are all going down hill every other few stores are closed or are having a huge blow out sale to clear inventory... Cornerstone square is really a one stop shop. You can drop of you watch for a battery, buy your groceries, pet supplies, clothing, grab a snack, meet a friend outside to chat and a coffee, pick up your watch from the battery change and be done.

Yes, Westford is conveniently located off 495 but my biggest concern is the traffic for us locals. These roads are already congested at rush hour and now there will be even more cars. There have been many times I've come out of the Emerson Health bldg and had to make a right on to 110 and it was backed up to the 110/Boston Road light. The new stores/business are going to make it harder to get around.
