  • At Beacon Yards, here comes the neighborhood

    Boston Globe - 05/07/2015

    The land beneath a vast highway interchange in Allston could benefit from some fresh pairs of eyes. Through a lucky convergence of events — the state’s move to all-electronic tolling just as a half-century-old Mass. Pike viaduct nears the end of its intended lifespan — the Massachusetts Department of Transportation plans to straighten out the highway a bit and free up dozens of acres long given over to toll booths and asphalt ramps. To maximize the use of that land, known as Beacon Yards, today’s highway planning needs to consider how a future neighborhood on the site might function. Some intriguing ideas come courtesy of a graduate architecture studio at Northeastern University.
