Somerville, MA — Union Square Station Associates (US2), the City’s master developer partner for Union Square’s revitalization, will conduct a presentation at tonight’s Somerville by Design community workshop focusing on transportation, infrastructure and environmental issues that will shape the future of the Union Square neighborhood and the redevelopment.
US2 will discuss proposed infrastructure improvements, strategies to mitigate stormwater runoff, approaches for mitigating the environmental impacts of former industrial uses, and improve traffic circulation, public transportation options, pedestrian movement and biking networks.
“Union Square’s revitalization gives us a tremendous opportunity to improve overall quality of life for residents and businesses of the neighborhood while making Union Square an even more desirable place for the people of Somerville and beyond to live, work and play,” said Greg Karczewski, president of US2.
Tonight’s Somerville By Design workshop will be held at the old Post Office at 237 Washington Street at 6:30pm and is open to the public.
Union Square Station Associates (US2) has been selected by the Somerville Redevelopment Authority (SRA) as the master developer partner for the Union Square revitalization plan.
The development team will work in partnership with the City of Somerville, SRA, Civic Advisory Committee, current property owners and the Union Square community to design and implement the redevelopment of seven development blocks identified in the state-approved Union Square Revitalization Plan.
US2 will work to achieve the goals outlined by the community in SomerVision – creating new jobs, public green spaces and homes within a range of affordability in Union Square while preserving the historical character and “funkiness” that everybody loves today.
