Project Information

The Capital Projects and Economic Development divisions are working together to implement a community vision for 90 Washington Street. Capital Projects is managing the development of the new Public Safety Building. Economic Development is overseeing the development of the community vision on the remainder of the site.

Project Site

The 90 Washington Street site is a 4 acre site a stones throw from the East Somerville GLX station. Based on good urban design principles and PSB project requirements, the site has been subdivided into four areas: the new realignment of New Washington Street, the Washington Street Redevelopment Parcels (Parcels A & C), and the PSB project site.

Project Timeline

Capital Project and Economic Development are working closely to implement the community vision for this site. The PSB project is expected to be completed in 2023. The visioning process for the remainder of the project site started in December '21 and will continue through the first part of 2022. After documentation of the shared vision, Economic Development will quickly pivot to implementation.
