The City of Boston retained BETA to prepare design concepts for the reconstruction of North Square in the North End of Boston. As one of the oldest, continuously occupied neighborhoods in the City, the North End contains some of the most significant historic and cultural sites in the country. North Square is home to the Paul Revere House National Historic Landmark, numerous other historic buildings and The Freedom Trail. This project includes improvements to pedestrian safety and accessibility, vehicular circulation, and enhances the Square’s cultural and historic value.
Treatments include ornamental lighting, brick and granite surfaces at selected locations, bike racks, and other amenities. The project also includes circulation modifications, pavement rehabilitation, new granite curbing, the widening of sidewalks, street trees, and textured crosswalks.
