The 700,000 sf urban planning coincided with the Boston MBTA Green Line Extension into Somerville’s Union Square. The new development consists of a multi-residential tower with ground-level retail and transportation access. Situated in between Union Square and the Green Line Extension, the development plans to service a growing population in Somerville. 

The planning of the development requires coordination with City officials through public hearings and town hall meetings in which developers, architects, and city officials develop zoning strategies and conduct large-scale planning analysis.
