Placemaking Project: Bartlett Yards, Roxbury

The Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance recognizes placemaking initiatives across the Commonwealth. This project is one of many that were featured at our 2013 conference. See other placemaking examples

Bartlett Yard is the site of the former MBTA Bartlett Bus Yard and the future home of Bartlett Place, a major new residential and retail development in Roxbury. The total site area is approximately 8.6 acres. From May-September, 2013, the site was host to a variety of community events as well as Boston’s largest collection of street art. The buildings are scheduled to be demolished in December, 2013, to make way for Bartlett Place.
