Massive Union Square project in Somerville wins key approvals
Developer US2 announced that the Somerville Planning Board unanimously approved a 2.4 million square foot project to transform Union Square for residential and commercials uses. In addition, the Somerville Board of Aldermen also improved infrastructure improvements to the area critical to the development.
The project includes 900 to 1,000 residential units, including 180 to 200 income restricted affordable units, across multiple properties that only currently contain a total of 2 residential units. The next step is the design review of the first phase of the project with a goal to begin construction in 2018.
