MBTA: Central Square

Cambridge, MA

Project Goal:


The MBTA is planning to update Central Square Station to meet current accessibility requirements. Specifically, the project includes replacing an existing elevator and constructing two new elevators and replacing escalators. The two new elevators and the renovation of the existing elevator require extensive station modifications to accommodate the construction of new shafts and machine and electrical rooms.  



RND is assisting the internal real estate and legal departments with the acquisition of all required temporary construction easements and permanent property easements necessary to renovate the existing elevator and install two new elevators at the station. Work includes coordinating with the surveyors and designers to identify and minimize the necessary easements, prepare titles, appraisals, and review appraisals, along with the preparation of an acquisition package.
