Our 16-seed Curbed Cup tournament to pick the region’s Neighborhood of the Year enters its endgame with a Final Four that includes reigning champ Assembly Row.
Polls close 24 hours after they open. Go.
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.
Millennium Tower, New England’s tallest residential building, opened this year, and now the proverbial hourglass turns over: Will the 60-story spire truly change Downtown Crossing once and for all from a 9-to-5 enclave to a 24-7 neighborhood? Will it get any help from Millennium Place nearby, which itself opened only a few years ago? Or from the attendant retail such as Roche Bros.?
Stay tuned. A lot of folks have been asking these questions.
