Somerville’s Magoun Square is becoming a different area, changed by yoga and bikes. There is a shift in urban community towards wealthier residents and businesses bringing with it a new personality. Some may say that this is a good change, while others who currently enjoy the urban community see this change as losing some of Magoun Square’s unique features.

Soon to come in the middle of spring, the bike path in Somerville will reach the Magoun Square area. New residential developments such as Maxwell Green’s yoga studios have attracted new younger, free spirited people. Magoun Square is becoming alike Davis’ Cambridge and is also becoming more active in the fitness realm.

ABG Commercial has dealt with properties pertaining to fitness as Bernard recently worked with a property that now has a Crossfit program!
