The Arsenal Project of Watertown (formerly known as Arsenal Mall) is a small enclosed shopping mall located at 485 Arsenal Street in Watertown, Massachusetts. Its anchor stores include The Home Depot, Marshalls, Forever 21, Old Navy, and Golf Town. The mall, managed by Wilder Companies, features 56 stores and a food court.
Filene's Basement, one of the mall's anchors, filed for bankruptcy protection on May 4, 2009. The store closed in 2011 and was converted to Sports Authority, which in turn ceased operations in July 2016.
Located on the site of the former Watertown Arsenal, predating the Civil War, the mall opened in 1983 as Arsenal Marketplace. Original anchor stores included Marshalls and Ann & Hope. Ann & Hope closed in the early 2000s, and was replaced by Home Depot and (since closed) Linens 'n Things (replaced by Golf Town).
The mall was renovated in 2013 by developer company Boylston Properties. At that time the mall was renamed The Arsenal Project of Watertown.
