Neighborhood: North End
Description: The Boston Public Works Department will be making site improvements to North Square. The Square is one of Boston’s oldest occupied neighborhoods and is a part of a vibrant community fabric in the North End. A popular tourist destination, North Square features the Paul Revere House and the Freedom Trail, with its 4 million annual visitors. The revitalization of North Square will be founded on the idea of developing an open space with multiple urban uses. The purpose of the project will be to improve the ability for people to enjoy the square. This will be done by developing its identity as a cultural destination and making the space accessible for all. The Square is an important part of the historic fabric of the City and will be approached with due concern for community and stakeholder input and concerns.
At completion, North Square will be a livable, walkable, multimodal, green and sustainable square, accommodating all users of this historic space.
