Urban Design lecture | Transit-oriented design: New Spokes in the Hub

The Green Line is coming, and the Fairmount Indigo Line is here! What does new access to public transportation mean to a community? With the first phase of construction under way on the much-anticipated Green Line Extension and new stations open along the Fairmount Line, this panel discussion will focus on the MBTA’s planning efforts; the cities of Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, and Medford; and dedicated individuals needed to integrate the Green Line Extension and Fairmount Line into the urban fabric of these communities.

Join the BSA Urban Design Committee on Thursday, September 19, at 6:30 pm for a thought-provoking discussion around transit and community evolution. Panelists include Michael Glavin, executive director at the Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development for the City of Somerville; Gretchen von Grossmann, director of Facilities and Transit-Oriented Development for the MBTA; Margaret Lackner, director of Design and Architecture for the MBTA; Joshua Fiala AIA, urban planner and architect for The Cecil Group; KyAnn Anderson, senior project architect for Kleinfelder; and Michael Epp AIA, principal architect for Kleinfelder.
