Allston Green is a new multi-family residential development bringing a much-needed community green and civic spaces to one of the densest neighborhoods in Boston. This three-building complex, developed by LBC Boston with architecture by PCA and landscape by Halvorson | Tighe & Bond Studio, creates two significant open spaces, accessible to the public and residents alike.
The large neighborhood green at the corner of Pratt and Linden Street offers a variety of flexible-use spaces—including a central lawn, a civic plaza with unique swing structures, and a tree-shaded plaza, with varied seating opportunities throughout—to encourage a wide variety of neighborhood activities.
A smaller landscaped courtyard, which is contemplative and peaceful in character, creates a green oasis in the tight urban setting, accentuated by plantings and various seating types.
These open spaces are complemented by active ground-floor amenity spaces expected to be activated and programmed in association with the thriving local arts community, including a gallery, co-working arts space, and work/live artist units that open onto the park.
