In July, Northborough Patch met with Jimmy Voyiatzis, who is the developer of the buildings located at 73-79 Main St., almost directly across from the Dunkin' Donuts. For nearly three years, building plans and construction have been underway for these two identical colonial structures.
According to Town Planner Kathy Joubert, Boost Fitness, which is presently located at 4 West Main St. (in the building formerly occupied by Tom's Marketplace), is planning to move into one of the buildings at the beginning of February.
John Coderre, town administrator, remarked at the Board of Selectmen meeting, "One building will be occupied by Boost, and the other building will be a restaurant. After some considerable delays, the project is moving forward. The Boost building is the building to the west."
Despite some holdups in the process, including the applicant in non-compliance with the Design Review Committee's recommendations, as well as issues with the Earth Removal Board, Fire Department and Conservation Commission, the project is moving toward completion. According to Nick Voyiatzis, Jimmy's son who is instrumental in the project, "We are working diligently to get Boost open by mid February or the beginning of March."
The Voyiatzises also plan to open the Hillside Restaurant, "a new style restaurant with gourmet food for a Blue Jeans Pizza price," in one of the buildings. They also hope to lease to other businesses, and use the buildings for office space.
