    Abstract

    With the MBTA Green Line Extension to Somerville, an economic opportunity exists to transform the light industrial Inner Belt Core neighborhood through transit-oriented, mixed-use redevelopment. This project provides a vision for such redevelopment based on highest and best use and state-of-the-art design. Urban planning guidelines were used to develop design, including infrastructure requirements to improve multimodal access and street-level enhancements. The final vision is a revitalized, groundbreaking commercial and residential Inner Belt Core.
