Dec. 26—The Market and Main development in Bedford is strictly commercial again, with plans for shops, restaurants, offices and a hotel.

The project, which now includes Trader Joe’s and the Friendly Toast as well as a Carrabba’s Italian Grill that pre-dates the development, has been stalled for the past year since the $120 million plan to include up to 200 apartments was rejected by town planners in September 2020.

Last month, the planning board signed off on a scaled-back design for the long-awaited project at the site of a former Macy’s off South River Road. The previously proposed 1,200-seat Regal Cinema and a five-level parking garage are no longer part of the plan.
