Full design and permitting services were provided for a 625,000 square foot open air mixed-use development and 382 affordable (Chapter 40B) apartments at the intersection of two state highways, Route 9 and Route 20 in Northborough, MA.  The project includes the first Wegman’s Supermarket in New England, as well as a combination of retail, restaurants, and both formal and preserved open space.

Services included wetland mapping, environmental resource delineation, boundary survey, and full civil engineering and landscape architectural design.  Our work also included the design and permitting of approximately two miles of off-site sewer and water.  Permits on this 160-acre mixed use project include a variance to allow retail use in an industrial district, Special Permit, Site Plan Review, Mass Highway curb cuts, an Order of Conditions, DEP sewer permits, and an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) with MEPA.
