Newly Approved Development Sets New Standard in Boston Suburb
"Northland Investment Corp.’s proposed development in Upper Falls will move forward after city councilors Monday night approved 800 apartments, 180,000 square feet of office space, and 115,000 square feet of retail and community space in what will become the largest project of its kind in Newton’s history," reports John Hilliard.
The project required a special permit and zoning changes, booth granted by the Newton City Council this week. The project has the backing of local affordable housing and environmental groups.
In total, the project will add 14 buildings on 22 acres.
