Groundbreaking Ceremony for Saint Polycarp Village Apartment Project

Mostue & Associates Architects recently broke ground for the St. Polycarp Village Rental Apartments, a 24-unit, mixed-use development in Somerville.

The 3.5-acre Saint Polycarp Village site was formerly owned by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston and used by the St. Polycarp Parish until 2002. Somerville Community Corporation purchased the land in March 2006 to revitalize the underutilized site.

The Saint Polycarp Village Apartments is the first of three phases of new construction on the site. The project will include 24 units of rental housing, 3 ground floor retail spaces, and landscaped greenspace.
