Smart Growth Project, The Batch Yard, EverettJanuary 20, 2014
The Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance recognizes smart growth projects and planning/zoning initiatives across the Commonwealth. This project is one of many that were featured at our 2013 conference. See other examples.
Located off Broadway, this project is the redevelopment of the former Charleston Chew factory. This project redevelops the vacant four-story concrete frame warehouse that served as the factory, into a seven-story apartment community, reusing many of the original building materials.
Opportunities: Reclamation of a blighted site and the need for a solution to the parking and stormwater issue present on an adjacent site.
Challenges: Contamination that required remediation on site prior to development.
