Utile tours Assembly Row

Last Thursday, the City of Somerville Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development generously agreed to give Utile staff a walking tour of the mixed-use Assembly Row development in Somerville. George Proakis, the Director of Planning, presented the history, planning, and development of the 56-acre mixed-use district. Home to Partners HealthCare’s new massive corporate office complex, Assembly Row is one of the largest development projects in Massachusetts, and continues to grow with additional housing, retail, and hotel construction. The group concluded the tour at the American Fresh Brewhouse Beer Garden to enjoy some local craft Slumbrew beer.
