    Event Description:

    Nubian Square Ascends - A Transformative Development in Roxbury

    The Nubian Square Ascends Project will transform Nubian Square into a cultural, entertainment, and artistic mecca that celebrates the rich diversity of the neighborhood. This mixed-use project will be developed by an all-minority team. Nubian Square Ascends will offer retail, entertainment, Artists Housing, commercial uses and a 300-space parking garage. It will create a nexus of science, academic, and medical research, given its location in a key institutional corridor.

    Join the development, design, and construction team as they discuss plans for this important project.
