Beacon Yards Urban Design Workshop

The Beacon Yards Urban Design Workshop is the first in a series of Urban Design Workshops that will follow a similar format. Two public presentations took place. The first, on September 16, provided an overview of the workshop objectives. The second, on September 18, presented workshop results. Two interdisciplinary teams, composed of designers from various firms and disciplines and led by Alex Krieger of NBBJ and Kishore Varanasi of CBT Architects, each produced a draft comprehensive plan for the Beacon Yards site that fully leverages the city building opportunities of the proposed interchange realignment.
