Somerville is a compact, hilly city sitting slightly north and east of downtown Boston. The city boasts diversity and a population density of 20,000 people per square mile. Commercial properties are located across the city in several charming squares, all with their own personality. These squares feature restaurants and cafes, live music venues, shopping, and thriving artist communities, amidst an exciting multicultural vibe. Somerville offers transit accessibility through bus lines and stops along the Red line (Davis Square) and Orange Line, where you will find a new thriving neighborhood, Assembly Square, located on the Mystic River offering an all-encompassing lifestyle that includes a live, work, dine, shop, and enjoy concept. The new addition of the Green Line Extension (GLX) will connect to downtown Boston, offering five new stops in Somerville: East Somerville, Ball Square, Gilman Square, Magoun Square and Union Square.
