Watertown, MA – Arsenal Yards, Greater Boston’s newest mixed-used development, is installing three large-scale murals at various locations around its property to coincide with the fall 2019 debut of its first round of restaurants and retailers. The mural artworks are currently being created by locally and nationally recognized artists commissioned by co-developers Boylston Properties and Wilder of Arsenal Yards.
The featured artists will include Louise “Ouizi” Jones, nationally recognized for her large scale floral murals, Massachusetts artist Kim Corlino, noted for her colorful abstract murals, and Boston artist Felipe Ortiz, who creates visual eye-stimulating historical themes.
A new urban village is being developed at Arsenal Yards with 250,000sf dedicated to retail, dining, fitness, and entertainment. Joining already-open Marshalls, Arsenal Yards retailers and popular fast-casual restaurants Shake Shack, Chipotle, Gap, and Old Navy are all expected to open in November. SQZ Biotech, the first of several life science companies, will be moving onto the site with state-of-the-art biotech lab space by the end of the year.
