A great place to live. A classic way of life.

Come home to a connected, community-focused neighborhood that hearkens back to a simpler era – and looks ahead to a sustainable future.

Emerson Green is a new, vibrant residential neighborhood located in the village of Devens, Massachusetts. Developed by NOW Communities and Union Studio, the neighborhood’s tree-lined streets, parks and welcoming front porches beckon you outdoors, recalling the era of friendly, cohesive neighborhoods and a simpler, mindful way of living. Emerson Green’s 124 single-family homes, duplexes, and multi-family apartments are sustainably constructed, energy efficient, and intentionally compact.

The best of both worlds.

Our philosophy combines a traditional perspective on mindfulness with the best aspects of a 21st-century lifestyle. Our homes are built using responsibly sourced materials with an eye towards energy efficiency – but they never sacrifice comfort. We prioritize quality craftsmanship and solid interior and exterior construction, resulting in unique, welcoming homes residents will be proud to call their own.
