LStar earns high praise for progress at Union Point

After years of delays, residents and local officials are applauding progress on Union Point, the sprawling redevelopment of the former South Weymouth Naval Air Station that the South Shore Chamber of Commerce calls “the most dynamic multi-acre, contiguous, transit-connected, development-ready site in all of greater Boston.”

WEYMOUTH – Eileen Sechovicz and her husband, Jerry, moved from Marshfield to a new townhouse at the 1,400-acre former South Weymouth Naval Air Station in 2014. They wanted to be closer to their daughter, who lives in Weymouth, and to the commuter train to Boston for Jerry’s work.

Sechovicz said she’s been happy all along with her new community, but she’s noticed a big difference since LStar Management took over the development, formerly called SouthField, a little more than two years ago.

“They say they are going to do things, and they do them,” she said. “Construction started up almost immediately, and recently it’s picked up a lot,” Sechovicz said as she played with her grandson and great-nephew on a median while construction crews worked nearby.

After years of delays under previous developers, residents and local officials are applauding progress on the 1,450-acre air base, a property the South Shore Chamber of Commerce calls “the most dynamic multi-acre, contiguous, transit-connected, development-ready site in all of greater Boston.”

Other residents and local officials are also applauding the progress since the North Carolina-based developer took over the stalled redevelopment of the long-closed air base, which has land in Weymouth, Rockland and Abington.
