The latest news in Wellesley, Mass., regarding the business scene is the removal of the White’s Bakery sign at Playhouse Square on Washington. The bakery opened in spring of 2019 and closed about a year later during the summer of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite its signs at 380 Washington St. outlasting the business by several years, they were recently taken down for reasons yet to be seen. The space previously housed a bank before becoming a bakery, and it could be anything now that it is vacant.
In other news, the Sleek Salon sign at 245 Washington St. in Wellesley Hills has been removed as well. The space below Yama restaurant has hosted other salons in the past, and with Sleek Salon gone, it is uncertain what will take its place.
Wellesley residents may be disappointed to hear that a roof deck planned for 112 Worcester St., located in Park 9 complex, will not be used as a party place. Andrew Cohen, an architect for Synergy Private Health’s future home, informed the Wellesley Design Review Board that “it’s certainly not planned to be a party place.” Instead, it will serve as a restful area and demonstrate herbs and plants grown for medicinal and wellness purposes. Despite this disappointment, Synergy’s roof deck rendering was shared with the Design Review Board by ACTTWO Architects.
