425 Medford Street Master Plan

425 Medford Street – Resilient Waterfront Master Planning

Charlestown, Massachusetts
Weston & Sampson is currently working with The Flatley Company and NELSON Worldwide on a master plan design for a 55-acre waterfront site in Charlestown. This mixed-use development prioritizes addressing existing and future site flooding from predicted 2070 sea level rise and climate change by incorporating a resilient flood barrier within a system of new public open spaces. By raising the existing grades along the waterfront, a hierarchy of new pedestrian open spaces are created, offering users a multitude of spatial experiences.
