Belmont | Massachusetts

Welcome to Cushing Village

Welcome to Cushing Village, the dynamic new retail development planned for Toll Brother's Bradford project. Located in Belmont, Massachusetts, a few miles from Harvard Square and about five miles to Boston, we look for it to be the premiere shop, work, dine and socalize destination for the Boston metro area. Cushing Village shall consist of the ground floor of the Bradford's cluster of uniquely designed structures and an integral part of the revitalization of Belmont's charming Cushing Square.

In July of 2013, the developers, Smith Legacy Partners Series, LLC, received approval from the Belmont Planning Board to build the much anticipated Cushing Village development. While Toll Brothers is now the current master developer of the project and has been renamed the overall project to The Bradford, the retail portion of the project will continue as Cushing Village and be managed by Smith Legacy Partners Series, LLC and its affiliate Starr Capital Partners, LLC.

Construction has started Spring of 2017 and completion is expected within a two year timeline. For additional information regarding the details of this transformative retail project, please take a moment to explore this site further.
