WDT: Lundy proposes $8 million redevelopment Watertown medical arts building

    As a teen I spent a lot of time in the Medical Arts Building on Clinton Street. My stepfather's office was there and so was my dentist, Dr. Rubin.....The restaurant had great burgers and Calendars Pharmacy was the place to shop.

    In recent years, the building has been not so vibrant and now there's a proposal to redo the parcel. If it works out, that's good for downtown.

"If it works out"? Hehe...why would you make that comment?

Seems like he should get financing in place for the actual construction, with help from the Trust. But to actually purchase the land and get it ready, seems like that should be his skin in the game.

Have you been in it lately, 8:44 PM? I too remember fondly Calendar's Pharmacy (and the coffee shop) but the building inside is like a 3rd world country now. Seriously, Not only largely vacant, but horribly run-down. Taking my mother to see Dr. Khan was like stepping into a 3rd world county.

Lets ask the Eagles, NSIL, JCC/Commerce Park Drive, Meat processors, and California Fruit Company, about the wrath of con. There is at l two sides to every story, so we should hear all sides of why some projects never came to fruition. I mean so the alphabet agencies can tell if this is likely to go through or if its really just land speculation paid for with corporate welfare.

Nice to see a great development which is desperately needed there since nothing has been done to that building in MANY years. It was an absent slumlord of business because any local businessman would have kept it up except for his wallet. The only question is, how can all of that be done for 8million when the arena project cost 11. I guess we should work and dont worry about big studies which only raise the cost..
Nice job Mr. Lundy.
