March 2019 Member Lunch: Michael Barelli, New England Development – Allston Yards
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.
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.
