The presentation will include an update, review and discussion of plans relating to the first phase, Phase 1, of the approved Master Plan of the Watertown Mall Transformation Project. The purpose of this meeting is to update the community as to Phase 1 of the Master Plan which provides a collaborative and innovative campus including life science, retail, residential, and community uses, as well as publicly accessible open spaces and streetscape improvements.

The discussion will review the final design details of three of the proposed buildings (OL-2, OL-3 and A-2) and any related landscaping and other improvements which are part of Phase 1 of the Master Plan Site. The site is located at 446-458, 500 and 550 Arsenal Street.
