Charter Development Reaches Land Transfer Agreement for Lynn Waterfront

Charter Development has taken title to 16 acres of land previously owned by National Grid, and now owns the entire 30-acre parcel of land at the former Lynn landfill. This land transfer agreement puts us one step closer to the creation of the public waterfront park as part of the vision for the Lynn Waterfront Open Space Master Plan.

“We are thrilled to have completed this milestone land transfer. This successful outcome is the product of four years of planning and close collaboration with both National Grid and municipal and state stakeholders.”

-Mason Sandell, Charter Development Principal

Charter can now work to complete the first phase of the project, which involves capping the former landfill, remediating impacted parcels, and adding coastal resiliency measures to enable productive reuse of the land for the benefit of the citizens of Lynn. The landfill capping project is expected to be completed in late 2023.
