The latest news in Wellesley, Mass., is the removal of the White’s Bakery sign at Playhouse Square on Washington Street. The bakery opened in spring of 2019 and closed about a year later during the summer of 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the White’s Bakery signs at 380 Washington St. have outlasted the business by several years and were recently removed for an unknown reason. The space housed a bank before the bakery, so it could be anything.
In other news, the sign for Sleek Salon at 245 Washington St. in Wellesley Hills has been removed as well. The space below Yama restaurant has housed other salons in the past. On a positive note, Andrew Cohen, an architect for Synergy Private Health, informed the Wellesley Design Review Board that plans to add a roof deck at 112 Worcester St. (in the Park 9 complex) are not intended to be a party place but rather a space for “rest and relaxation” and demonstrations of herbs and plants to be grown there for medicinal and wellness purposes.
