The Grossman’s sign at 27 Washington Street in Wellesley Lower Falls went down around noon today to make way for National Development’s new office/retail/housing construction project, which will start going up in the fall.
I actually came across a Globe story from the mid-1990s referring to the space as the “old Grossman’s lot,” so it’s really been a while since the property has seen any real action.
The press and others donned hard hats to get a close-up view. I chose to lurk from high across the street on a stone wall to get a different view.
You might recall in April that there was speculation about preservationists calling for “our Citgo sign” to be saved!
