In the two-plus decades as a leader at Samuels & Associates, Peter Sougarides has built a reputation for leading the development of complex, mixed-use projects that offer best-in-class commercial, residential and retail experiences and enhance their surrounding communities. Trained as civil engineer, Peter’s eye for detail assures that projects are designed to meet modern energy efficiency goals, maximize their proximity to transit, and offer outstanding spaces for their users. Community engagement is a hallmark of every project Peter leads, with the final product benefiting from insights gathered from community involvement.
Since joining Samuels & Associates in 2000, Peter has focused his considerable expertise on transforming long underutilized areas of the Fenway neighborhood into vibrant spaces in this historic community. From residential projects like The Pierce, Fenway Triangle Trilogy and 1330 Boylston, to a variety of life sciences and tech focused spaces, Peter gives equal weight to both the place-making of the ground-floor experience and that of the resident, office worker, lab researcher or patient who may occupy the building above.
As Samuels has grown, Peter’s work has extended into other Boston neighborhoods and region’s outside the city core. Regardless of the neighborhood, Peter shares the Samuels & Associates vision of creating dynamic spaces that are welcoming to a diverse array of residents, visitors, employees and more.
A Bostonian born and bred, Peter has made a legacy of his lifelong passion for bringing positive growth to neighborhoods, particularly the ones in which he grew up. With a Civil Engineering degree from Northeastern University and early career experience in engineering and real estate, Peter considers future trends in sustainability, transit, public open space, and community engagement as a key part of every project design.
An active member of the local community, Peter can regularly be found at events supporting Fenway’s major community organizations, arts organizations and healthcare non-profits. Peter is on the board of the Emerald Necklace Conservancy and the Boston chapter of Urban Land Institute.
