It's time to reflect on the past year, and Boston Business Journal is making note of 2013's biggest groundbreakings—three of which touch the retail business. First and foremost, construction resumed on Millennium Tower, set to rise in the pit where Filene's once stood with 95,000 square feet of retail. Then, the attention is turned on New Balance and its mega $500 million headquarters-meets-retail-meets-sports complex project over in Brighton, aptly titled "Boston Landing." Finally, BBJ notes there is hope in the abandoned Westwood Station project out in the 'burbs, also expected to include sizable retail space in its plans for a 130 acre site.
