Join us on March 15th to hear from Michael Barelli of New England Development discuss Allston Yards. The development will create a new, mixed-use, transit-oriented neighborhood at the nexus of Allston, Brighton, and the new Boston Landing district.  The project will provide and build upon several key infrastructure investments: extension and expansion of the street grid through the site, new connections to the Boston Landing MBTA commuter rail station, improved pedestrian and bicycle connections, and the creation of new pedestrian-scale, publicly-accessible open spaces.

All of this will transform a unique site – currently occupied by an older shopping plaza and large surface parking lots – into a new neighborhood.  The proposed redevelopment – on the site of an existing 10.6-acre retail center at 60 Everett Street – consists of residential, office, a flagship Stop & Shop, as well as other ground-floor retail, restaurant, and fitness uses. A proposed one-acre community green will be activated with diverse programming, such as outdoor health and wellness events, public art exhibits, music concerts, and holiday festivals.

Stop & Shop and New England Development, as Master Developer, are working in partnership with The Bozzuto Group and Southside Investment Partners. Elkus Manfredi Architects is the Master Planner, and Stantec is the Architect for the project’s initial phase.
