Public Ownership

Revitalizing neighborhoods by creating “meaningful” public spaces.

One Journal Square

Mixed UseIn Progress


Woods Bagot is currently working on a residential and retail tower centered around the Transit Oriented Development functionality of Journal Square. The project is designed to revitalize the neighborhood through the creation of new public plazas and an iconic architectural language.

Project details

Two towers pivot around a corner axis to create a dynamic form in response to the oblique approaches of the non-orthogonal road network. Retail programs are designed to activate the new plaza, create new destinations, and fulfill the needs of an emerging community.

The 2 million-square-foot mixed-use project has a 10-story, mixed-use podium with a cellar including: separate ground level lobbies, reception and mail room services for residential towers 1 & 2, as well as access to an above grade parking garage, and below grade loading areas and building services. Retail space is provided on the ground level and second level and is directly accessible from the building exterior terraces. There are five office floors. The two towers will provide 756 units of rental apartments for a total of 1512 units. Both sit on two floors of shared amenity including a full size basketball court and pool.
