New, 1 comment

It’s 2015’s winner against an up-and-comer

The Curbed Cup, our annual award for the Greater Boston neighborhood of the year, is kicking off with 16 areas vying for the prestigious (fake) trophy. This week we'll have two matchups per day, and all the results and the full tournament bracket will be reviewed on Friday.

Voting for each pairing ends 24 hours after it begins. Let the eliminations commence!

Assembly Row saw some epic prices this year (and sales) as well as fresh development such as the Alloy condos (and plans for tons more). The Somerville neighborhood also continued to draw shoppers, tenants, and buyers to an area that only a few short years ago had little going for it—a truly transformative project for the region.

East Watertown’s 2016 saw the debut of specifics re: a more than 1 million-square-foot project called Arsenal Yards. Said development is slated to include 428 market-rate apartments and 75 affordable ones as well as six “chef-driven” restaurants, according to the developers, and a 30,000-square-foot specialty grocery store.
