Union Point is transforming 1,500 acres in Massachusetts’ premier South Shore into a spectacular city that features 1,000 acres of open space and 50 miles of trails. Weymouth’s small-size appeal, attractive housing options, and proximity to Boston earned Boston Magazine’s “Best Places to Live” citation. With its state-of-the-art Sports Complex, and progressive green design, Union Point is quickly becoming the place to live, work, and play—the ultimate in modernity within the heart of New England.
Union Point, the former South Weymouth Naval Air Station, was first built as a World War II Blimp Base—one of two in the northeast with K-type airship mooring masts. After the war, the Naval Air Reserve took it over, training Navy and Marine Corps aircraft squadrons and units there until 1997. Years later, half the acreage was transferred to Weymouth, Rockland, and Abington Townships; and, after land changed hands several times, LStar Ventures acquired the entire property in 2015.
