Home to a collection of food wholesalers, the Widett Circle area, between the South End and South Boston, had been primed as a potential site for Boston’s failed Olympics bid. Now, with the area around them undergoing rapid redevelopment, the wholesalers are moving toward putting their 19-acre property in play by bidding for a new home in South Boston.
“Collectively, they all agree there’s probably a long-term better use for Widett Circle than what is there today,” said developer John Hynes, who has teamed up with the wholesalers — New Boston Food Market cooperative — to bid for a parcel in the city’s marine industrial park in South Boston. “What the Olympic committee designed for Widett Circle kind of woke everybody up to the fact this is a pretty good location.”
