One Charlestown will re-knit the BHA property with the rest of Charlestown through a new street grid, new public open spaces and new retail along the Bunker Hill Street corridor.

Charlestown "Morse Code"
The facades of new buildings will be designed to reference the rythym of architecture and facades that exists throughout Charlestown.
This diagram shows how street layouts and building designs enclose the Bunker Hill Apartments from the surrounding neighborhood.
New Street Grid
New streets will continue into the neighborhood from the rest of Charlestown, helping to "knit" the area back together.
New Public Open Space
Two new parks are part of the design, including a public square along Bunker Hill Street and a more active park between Tufts and Corey Streets.
The red on this diagram indicates new non-residential first floor uses like retail storefronts. The tenants of these first floors will provide a mix of retail types and affordability for existing BHA residents and the greater Charlestown community.
