Re: Union Square D2.1 | 10 Prospect Street | Somerville

It is odd how little Union Sq proper was upzoned - much of it not at all. In the long run, this will shift the center of gravity away from the historic square towards the Green Line stop...

Don't remember seeing a Prospect Hill render before, but this set has one on p.16.

Re: Union Square D2.1 | 10 Prospect Street | Somerville

If they don't dumb down or chop down the tower at D2.3 it's going to be a heck of a visual landmark for Union Square.

It looks like there's 1 more fairly tall tower that will be built in the future so that Union will have its own distinct little skyline when this is all completed.

They could rebrand it, “Old Union Square” which is corny but would probably attract more retail attention.

All of Somerville is being rezoned.

Much of Union is being zoned for 4-7 stories of residential and commercial, with a few targeted spots like this one designated for high-rises.

The latest, as Somerville pushes this toward 2019 construction:

FWIW, there was a community-driven "alternative" site plan that got stiff-armed by the Planning Department. The 3 buildings are 10 Prospect (office and lab), 20 Prospect (low residential) and 50 Prospect (high residential).
