Hyde Park Village primes vacant Swann Avenue block for new retailers and restaurants

Hyde Park Village is prepping for another round of construction — one that will leave its vacant space along Swann Avenue primed for several new tenants.

 

WS Development, the Boston-based owner of Hyde Park, is seeking a substantial change approval from the city for the 1500 block of Swann Avenue “to address changes in retail tenancy,” according to its application. A substantial change decision, unlike a rezoning request, can be made by city staff and isn’t subject to a public hearing.

 

LA Fitness vacated more than 30,000 square feet along Swann Avenue when it shuttered its Hyde Park location in 2017.

 

“We are preparing a portion of our property for the purpose of re-tenanting in the future,” Susan Martin, general manager of Hyde Park Village, said in a statement.

 

The site plan filed with the city doesn’t reveal specific tenant names, but it shows an evolution in WS Development’s vision for the space. On a conceptual site plan WS filed with the city earlier this year, a market was shown taking up more than 16,000 square feet — the largest chunk of the space that LA Fitness vacated.
This is the previously filed site plan:

 

 

In the new version, an unnamed fitness concept is given the biggest share of the space, at more than 12,000 square feet. A concept that splits its more than 6,400 square feet between a restaurant and retail is shown next to West Elm, fronting Village Circle.
