The building façade design is inspired by materials, proportions, and architectural cadence found in other key corner buildings along Somerville Avenue. The height of the ground floor storefront aligns with the retail frontage of existing buildings directly to the east. In addition, the design introduces canopies for pedestrian comfort and better visual connection to the interiors. The landscape design proposes a street furniture zone along Somerville Avenue, including the bus stop, bike racks, street trees, and an extension of the corner curb line to create a parklet element for increased engagement with the public. The building at 599 Somerville Avenue will pursue LEED Gold certifiable requirements and strive to create a visually and spatially dynamic urban environment.
