Belmont Waverly Square Air Rights Study

Belmont, Massachusetts

The Town of Belmont commissioned Harriman to complete a feasibility study for the  acquisition and development of air rights over the MBTA rail station at Waverley Square. The project was a continuation of the firm’s previous study of a significant travel corridor in Belmont. Waverley Square is an important community center within the corridor, and will be the hub for the major redevelopment project at McLean Hospital.  Harriman created a transit-oriented, mixed-use project that has the density required for financial feasibility, and will reinvigorate the square, support smart growth concepts and be sustainable from the perspective of the community, the MBTA, and the Commonwealth.
