If you missed it:

The owner of city eyesore Nobscot Plaza is buying the Nobscot Chapel for $50,000, according to local media reports. “Andrew Rose, principal of Centercorp Retail Properties, agreed to purchase and move the chapel” and turn it into a cafe or restaurant, according to the MetroWest Daily News. “In its place, Rose hopes to construct a new CVS.” That topped a competing bid from Rick McKenna, who had offered to buy the property for $10,000 less and “transform it into an eatery and market.” See more: https://www.metrowestdailynews.com/news/20190226/framingham-plaza-owner-accepts-citys-term
