In the spring of 2015 the town plan­ning board of Water­town saw an up-tick in the appli­ca­tions for res­i­den­tial com­plexes, office build­ings, hotels, shops and restau­rants along the Arse­nal Street pas­sage­way. Pow­ered by the eco­nomic upturn, add in the easy com­mute to Boston, access to public trans­porta­tion and afford­able land prices — change began. The vision for this former indus­trial site was to begin by open­ing it up, remov­ing the chain link fenc­ing and con­nect­ing to the Water­town Green­way Bike Path. The revi­tal­iza­tion of Arse­nal Street was under­way, making Water­town Boston’s next bor­ough.

Known as LINX, the naming idea coming from the link­ing” of the Green­way, the Charles River and nearby neigh­bor­hoods is a mix office space with a sub­stan­tial out­door area for infor­mal meet­ings and leisure activ­i­ties.

The Inula Column and Bol­lard were selected for this project because of their sophis­ti­ca­tion and abil­ity to illu­mi­nate path­ways and areas with no up light. Inula pro­vides light­ing that is har­mo­nious with the sur­round­ing neigh­bor­hoods.

  • The Inula Bollard and Column are sophisticated and environmentally friendly pathway and area luminaires with no up light. The proprietary optic provides clean lighting patterns with no striations. A recessed LED light engine, convex cone shaped light chamber, and matte Black finish provides a BUG up light rating of U0.
