"Smart Growth Leadership" Award

from the Office for Commonwealth Development (OCD)

This award was created to honor those communities who have taken major steps to encourage smart growth and the organizations that support them. It recognizes their efforts as models for all 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts. 10-12 Summer Street is a consummate transit-oriented project and an outstanding example of municipal leadership and involvement in affordable housing. The project demonstrates that new affordable housing can make an important aesthetic contribution to a town center.
