Sustainable 'Smart City' Near Boston Aims To Be 100% Green

By Desirée Kaplan

As science develops and offers better innovations, municipalities around the world are looking for ways to retrofit their cities with new technologies. One group of developers decided to sidestep the issue by creating a “smart city” from the ground up. As the first city of its kind in the Northeast, Union Point is designed to harness clean power and be energy efficient. 

This sustainable urban development is 12 miles south of Boston, and 42 miles northeast of Providence. With an on-site commuter rail station, Union Point residents can be in Boston within a 20-minute train ride. Phase I is designed to create a walkable city environment spanning 450,000 square feet.
