  • Discovering USQ

    Discovering USQ

    At February’s luncheon, Greg Karczewski (President at Union Square Station Associates (US2), Sunayana Thomas (Senior Economic Development Planner at the City of Somerville, and Thanos Matthaie (Associate at DLA Piper LLP (US) presented on both the history and the future revitalization of Somerville’s Union Square. 
    Greg Karczewski in partnership with development partners, USAA Real Estate and Magellan Development Group were selected back in 2014 by the City of Sommerville to be the Master Developer to lead this 2.4 million SF transit-oriented development and transform Somerville into Boston’s next innovation ecosystem through a concentration of life science and technology companies. The mission was to get companies to start, grow, and stay in Sommerville. After the streetcar went away and no public connectivity existed in and out of Somerville the city found itself a bit lost.  The approval and addition of two new green line train stops strategically located on each side of the square was the real catalyst for fostering future development and desirability for companies to make Somerville their headquarters. After years of community outreach, thoughtful planning, and curating the right public/private partnerships , Union Square is prime to become Boston’s next major epi-center for biotech, lab, and life science office space.

    Member Panel Spotlight: Getting Involved in Local Government

    On February 3, 2020, members attended the Public Strategies Committee’s virtual breakfast to hear from an esteemed panel of CREW Boston members that are active in their local government.  The panelists described how they first became involved in local government, which included stories of connections made through youth sports programs and neighborly conversations while shoveling snow.  Each of the panelists described the benefits of participation in local government, including valuable experience with public speaking, more active involvement in their community as a whole and have a voice in what/how things are accomplished, and a chance to give back to the communities they care about.  The panelists also provided some practical advice for CREW members who need to interact with local government, stressing the importance of understanding and respecting the role of local government staff, and being mindful that communications over all platforms are part of the public record.  The conversation included a great discussion with the audience, culminating with panel members articulating the powerful role that CREW Boston has played in their careers
