Rohit Group of Companies has recently announced they are kicking off the construction of Stadium Yards, a mixed-use transit-oriented urban district next to Commonwealth Stadium.

Through its Stadium Yards project, Rohit is inviting creative businesses, restaurants and startup entrepreneurs with a passion to build a sense of community where they operate to participate in this life changing contest.
