North Allston/Brighton Community Master Plan

Harriman led a multi-disciplinary planning and design team, assisting the Boston Redevelopment Authority in preparing a district master plan for the areas that include and are adjacent to Harvard University’s major campus expansion across the Charles River and into Boston. The district includes substantial holdings by Harvard, only some of which will be required for campus uses into the foreseeable future. Harriman team explored methods and urban design principles that would promote redevelopment  of  the non-campus holdings, expansion of  the tax base,  and leverage institutional investment to improve the quality of the district as a place to live and work.
