The MIT Volpe Team hosts its fourth annual Block Party with a virtual celebration. The event features musical performances by Jeremy Lyons and the Nephrok! Allstars — and includes a special appearance by Phaedra!

This year’s Block Party precedes yet another round of community engagement for the Volpe project — this time focusing on the masterplan design for the development, including the design and programming of the Volpe open spaces as well as the much anticipated community center. Community members will be invited to share their ideas with the MIT Volpe Team regarding these spaces later this fall during the project's special permit process. Upon completion, the Volpe project will include four commercial buildings, over 1,300 residential units including approximately 260 affordable units, significant ground floor retail and active use spaces, 2 ½ acres of open space, and a
community center.
