Uptown Mixed-Use Development

Project Description

The Nine Springs Neighborhood is a 385 acre transit-oriented, mixed use employment center designed to take advantage of and build upon Fitchburg’s strong biotechnology and high-tech base. Nine Springs also provides a variety of compact attached and detached housing options and neighborhood-oriented retail services to support the workforce. It is the first community in the City of Fitchburg to use Smartcode zoning.

Vierbicher’s work on the Nine Springs Neighborhood involved all civil engineering and stormwater management systems, as well as creating a park program for the proposed 110 acres of parkland that met both the Smartcode and City parkland requirements for total area and amenities while preserving and enhancing the large wetland areas within the planning area.
