Located at the intersecting point of the towns of Weymouth, Rockland and Abington just 12 miles south of Boston with direct commuter rail and highway access, the 1,550-acre Union Point master-planned development will soon be home to the Northeast’s first transit-oriented smart-city. Employing environment- and pedestrian-friendly planning throughout and providing access to Boston in just over 20 minutes by train, Union Point is setting the modern benchmark for sustainable metropolitan design. Master plan development was led by LStar Ventures with Elkus Manfredi Architects and Sasaki Associates. LStar Ventures has already sold several parcels at Union Point to developers, who have delivered multiple apartment and condominium residences to around 2,000 residents, with more development underway. With approvals in place to construct 10 million square feet of commercial space, 4,000 private residences, 40 restaurants, 1,000 acres of open space and 50 miles of hiking and biking trails, there is ample opportunity for developers, corporate tenants and homeowners to become a part of Union Point’s burgeoning community.

In recent weeks, Union Point has emerged as a leading potential contender for Amazon’s 8.1-million-square-foot second headquarters campus, a level of density which Union Point can easily support. Union Point’s first large-scale commercial tenant, Prodrive Technologies, is breaking ground on its new 350,000-square-foot United States headquarters at Union Point this fall.

Corcoran Management has opened The Mastlight, a luxury apartment community spread across two new-construction four-story buildings featuring 265 residences and 18,000 square feet along the newly opened William Delahunt Parkway extension road. The Mastlight will feature amenities including a clubhouse, an outdoor patio deck and a swimming pool. Across from The Mastlight is The Commons, a 298-unit luxury apartment community recently completed by Corcoran.

The Mastlight will be the first addition to Union Point’s downtown district, which is located steps from the commuter rail station and will contain nearly 4 million square feet of space including retail, office, medical, educational, entertainment, recreation, hotel and residential uses.

Steps from Union Point’s downtown district, LStar Ventures is now building a long-awaited recreational complex. Set for completion in early-to-mid 2018, the complex will include multiple turf fields, two of which will be used under indoor domes from November to March, basketball courts, an outdoor street hockey/ice hockey rink, a whiffle ball field, pickle ball courts, a park with a playground, a dog run, a restaurant and plentiful surface parking.

Next to the downtown district and adjacent to the commuter rail station, Pulte Homes is developing Woodstone Crossing, a 310-unit residential condominium community. At Woodstone Crossing, Winterwoods, a section which will feature 81 single-family homes and 27 townhouses, is now under construction. One building at Transit Village, a four-building section of Woodstone Crossing that will feature 200 residences across four buildings, has been built, and a second building at Transit Village is currently under construction.

Nearby, The Highlands Neighborhood, a community consisting of 115 single-family homes, townhomes and apartments, and Snowbird, a collection of 26 detached single-family homes, have both been built. Phase I of Faring Way, a senior living community built by Rice Eventide Communities and Rogerson Communities, opened in Fall 2016. Phase I features 104 condominium residences and a 46-bed nursing home. Construction of a second phase of Faring Way featuring 107 residences is now underway.

Across from Union Point’s under-construction recreation complex, Greystar will build a 180-unit senior apartment community featuring two four-story buildings fronting directly onto Memorial Grove Drive. A one-story leasing office and amenities center will stand between the two buildings. On-site amenities will include a swimming pool and a fitness area.

Four Winds at Union Point, a 500-unit housing community for ages 55 and older, started construction in early 2017. Developed by Bonvie Homes, Four Winds at Union Point will consist of a mix of townhouses, single-family homes and condominium residences.

Keeping in line with LStar’s vision of creating a beautiful, sustainable city that is technologically advanced and environmentally conscious, Union Point will be a pedestrian-friendly, walkable, green community upon completion, creating a strong sense of place and easing access between future landmarks and community resources. The newly opened, $6.5 million state-funded extension of William Delahunt Parkway through Union Point’s future downtown provides a direct connection between Weymouth Street in Rockland and Route 18 in Weymouth, easing access to Route 3 and allowing Union Point community members to easily drive the 12 miles between the development and Boston.

With fast track permitting for individual projects that provides site plan approval in just 30 days, Union Point presents an unprecedented mixed-use development opportunity offering an optimal blend of urban convenience and suburban peace of mind. With many more development projects in the works, it will be exciting to see Union Point continue to evolve into a truly sustainable mixed-use city.

Please email info@bldup.com or call 617-329-9042 to inquire about sales and leasing opportunities at Union Point.
