Arrowstreet is the master planner and architect for this 20-acre revitalization project in downtown Worcester. New construction totaling 1.8 million square feet will reposition the area as a lively, mixed-use district. The project includes approximately 1,000 residences; 500,000 square feet of office and medical space; 350,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and entertainment venues; and 3,900 parking spaces. New streets and urban plazas reconnect CitySquare with the surrounding civic, commercial, and transportation resources to create a vital, around-the-clock neighborhood in Worcester.

“For so many years the old mall just served as a big roadblock for people and vehicles in our downtown. Now with the mall gone, new buildings in place, new streets, new businesses settling there, it’s like ‘Welcome to the 21st-century economy.’”

– Michael E. Traynor, City of Worcester Chief Development Officer
