31 Union Square , Somerville

Master Plan


USQ is the revitalization of 15 acres in Union Square, Somerville. A thoughtful mix of new spaces will add to the rich context of a vibrant neighborhood. Proximity to MIT/Kendall, Harvard and Boston is enhanced by the new MBTA station.

New homes, shops and open spaces compliment new commercial spaces that will foster the next concentration of tech, biotech and life science companies within greater Boston.
