"Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because - and only when - they are created by everybody."
- Jane Jacobs
Union Square Station Associates (US2) is the City of Somerville’s master developer partner for the state-approved Union Square Revitalization Project. That project includes over 15 acres of redevelopment near the future Union Square MBTA Green Line Station. US2 is collaborating with the community to create a vital and viable redevelopment plan for Union Square that realizes the community objectives as laid out in Somerville’s long-term plan, SomerVision. These objectives include making Union Square into a destination for employers, creating public green space, achieving housing goals with a range of affordability, and preserving the historical character and authenticity that everybody loves today.
Founded by US2 and Workbar, Workbar Union will provide a home for early-stage companies and entrepreneurs as they seek to grow and to contribute to the expansion of Somerville’s economy. The space will be a collaboration center for over 75 members from a diverse array of fields, interests, and industries.
