New Tenants Welcomed at Somerville Mixed-use Community

Parla XXI

Somerville, MA – Assembly Row, a mixed-use neighborhood in Somerville, announced seven new tenant leases, many of which will open this year.

Restauranteur Frank McClelland is bringing a second FRANK location to Assembly Row, which is expected to open later this fall adjacent to The Row Hotel. Boston-based artist Giovanni DeCunto recently launched a new pop-up gallery showcasing his expressionist works, and Clover Food Lab brings a vegetarian offering to the Row. Seasonal activations include Night Shift Brewing’s Owl’s Nest beer garden and the brand-new Volo Beach from Volo Sports that will offer beach volleyball, pickleball and more.

New retailers also include IT’SUGAR, one of the world’s largest candy “retailtainers;” fashion boutique Style Snoop; collectible jewelry retailer Pandora; and PNC Bank.

“This new crop of tenants brings fresh concepts and diversity to Assembly Row, including our first vegetarian restaurant and a highly anticipated restaurant from Frank McClelland,” said David Middleton, general manager for Federal Realty at Assembly Row. “Our goal is to surprise and delight our guests with both permanent and pop-up experiences and there are many more in the pipeline for this year.”

Recent openings include Parla XXI, a speakeasy-inspired eatery offering Italian small plates and custom cocktails; French patisserie Le Macaron; and soon-to-come services from veterinary clinic Bond Vet. Anticipated openings include varied dining experiences from Civility Social House, An Nam, Tatte Bakery & Café, and Tribos Peri Peri.

Miscela, Assembly Row’s new 500-unit luxury apartment community, is currently leasing and just unveiled its new poolside and roof deck experience for the summer.
