Reporting on the positive connection between rail stations and development, The New York Times cites Assembly Row as a prime example. A new subway station opened at the mixed-use development in Somerville, Massachusetts in 2014, fueling interest from office and retail tenants, among others. Transit-oriented development draws young workers and can stimulate further investment. The New York Times notes that Assembly Row has transformed a 45-acre former industrial site along the Mystic River into a neighborhood with housing, offices, restaurants, and pedestrian-friendly streets. DMA is proud to be part of this multi-phase project, situated just outside Boston.
