Temple Street 

Somerville Community Corporation (SCC)

SCC acquired a site in the Winter Hill Neighborhood to develop 15 affordable condominiums. The Narrow Gate assisted SCC in conducting an intensive community review process during the planning and design of the project, which was permitted as a "friendly 40B" project. The design involved a detailed urban design analysis, provisions for historic commemoration of the site and immediate neighborhood, and inclusion of many sustainable design features.

bright opportunity

coordinated carefully

designed thoughtfully

executed gracefully
