“It’s been an incredible journey that now has so much less to do with architecture and so much more to do with humanity — creating spaces that respect a wide variety of people and become very welcoming environments.”
- This ambitious master plan imagines a 1,500-acre mixed-use, transit-oriented “Smart City” 12 miles south of Boston.
- The new city will incorporate sustainable design, integrated smart-living technologies, world-class architecture, and natural-state open space.
- Union Point will include 4,000 residences; 1,000 acres of conservation space; 10 million sf commercial space; three million sf of office space; and 1 million sf of retail, entertainment, and sports programming.
