A shining example of the New Urbanism, Russell Place in Arlington, MA, is a mixed income development of 42 one, two, and three bedroom homes. It is an extension, both in street pattern and building form, of the adjacent Russell Street Historic District. Bordered by a public park on one side and the Minuteman Bicycle Trail on the other, it is only 2 blocks from the commercial & civic center of town. Historic exterior colors and abundant architectural detail tie the buildings to the neighborhood and distinguish it from the fake historicism of much recent development. In a few years, with normal weathering, Russell Place will look as if it has always been there.
