Blackstone Highlands

Grafton & Sutton, Massachusetts

Working cooperatively with the Towns of Sutton and Grafton in forging new flexible zoning enabling creation of a 120-acre/400 unit Continued Care Retirement Community, new housing opportunities to meet the special needs of our aging population were created. From the projects' inception, WDA played a key role, providing land planning and feasibility analysis services to assist the client in assembling properties necessary to achieve project goals. WDA provided project management, collaborating with architectural, legal, traffic, MEPA, fire protection, and geotechnical consultants to develop project plans and special permit applications. Full-range services including survey, wetlands evaluation, civil engineering, landscape architecture, open space planning and public presentations were provided for this ambitious project. The international investors secured financial commitments for development and construction based on the completed permitting plans.
