"[NorthPoint is a] proposed $2 billion-plus planned community consisting of housing, office buildings, and retail and lab space... The 45-acre site is currently a no man's land of railroad yards and industrial space...Plans call for a ''necklace of parks," about 10 acres in all, that will help create 'a spine of open space" to complement parks along the Charles River....By clustering housing and office buildings near T stops, NorthPoint is [planned to be] 'the epitome of smart growth development.'"
