Wegmans revives plans for Westwood supermarket

The Wegmans at Westwood Station was supposed to end New England’s long wait for the grocery chain.

That was four years ago. The company, based in the Rochester, N.Y., area, had to defeat numerous challenges in the Massachusetts Legislature to secure a liquor license. But the economy soured and the Westwood Station project still hasn’t begun
But a partnership of local developers has now bought the 130-acre Westwood site. A group led by New England Development is moving ahead with a scaled-down master plan for the project, now dubbed University Station, and a hoped-for opening date of 2014.

Wegman’s has since opened a store in Northborough and is working on plans for stores in Newton and Burlington. Wegmans has apparently revived its plans to come to Westwood too, now that the Station project is moving ahead again.
