Somerville, MA: Winter Hill Neighborhood Plan


As part of the Somerville by Design neighborhood planning charrette process, Urban Advisors worked with Principle Group and City staff on a plan for the Winter Hill neighborhood. Responding to neighborhood concerns, we examined the market for grocery services explaining why a store had recently closed and identified a new location where a store would be viable. Urban Advisors provided pro-forma analysis to guide feasibility of proposed development including parking, and allotments for affordable units.  The plan included recommendations for feasible mixed use development along the neighborhood main street as well as infill development along and under an existing freeway.
