Above is a rendering of Ashlar Park - Transit Oriented Development in Quincy.
Transit-Oriented Development, such as Ashlar Park by South Shore-based developer, FoxRock, is less than 1/2 a mile from the Red Line & Commuter Rail at Quincy Center Station, and directly on an MBTA bus route.
Boston is a uniquely transit-oriented region, where 25% of housing units and 37% of employment is within a half-mile of a rapid transit or commuter rail station.
Now, Metro Boston is experiencing a new wave of growth near transit. Projects like Ashlar Park and hundreds of residential and commercial developments are underway, and more are on the horizon.
Cities and towns are creating station area plans and updated zoning to unlock development potential. The MBTA is accepting proposals for major developments on prime T-owned parcels, and state agencies are using transit proximity as a criteria for prioritizing infrastructure or housing resources.
The Metropolitan Area Planning Council TOD June 2021 Report identifies Greater Boston Transit Station Area Types and Transit-Oriented Development Potential by the following station area classifications:
- Metro core
- Neighborhood subway
- Transformational subway
- Trolley subway
- Urban gateway
- Town and village
- Commerce park
- Suburban transformational
You can use BLDUP’s Business Intelligence functionality to target Transit Station Area Types.
The Quincy Ashlar Park project is an example of Urban Gateway development. As categorized on the above map, Urban Gateway cities include Quincy, Lowell, Lawrence, Haverhill, Waltham, Malden, Lynn, Chelsea, Salem, and Beverly.
Below is an example of a BI segment for all residential project opportunities in these Urban Gateway towns and cities.
If you are interested in Suburban Transformational project opportunities, you can easily create a BI segment like the example below for Rockland, Holbrook, Westwood, Norwood, and Canton.
