The Union Square Revitalization project (USQ) is a transit-oriented development of over 2.4M SF including lab, office, housing, retail, and open space. This development will expand the Cambridge/Boston innovation ecosystem into Somerville and foster one of the next great concentration of life science and technology companies.
Within this larger development, Cranshaw is building the first project, 20-50 Prospect Street, a 25-story, approximately 535,800 SF apartment building that includes 450 units, amenity space, a 271-space parking garage and ground floor retail. The project is directly adjacent to the new MBTA Green Line station therefore coordination and communication with the T, the city and other agencies are a critical element of the project’s success.
The building will be constructed with a concrete CIP core, girder slab and precast panel façade with amenity deck along with a 5/1 wood frame and a steel/CIP composite concrete deck system.
