A development proposal for a mixed use multifamily housing for mixed income population on site of abandoned restaurant building in Fresh Pond Parkway, Cambridge MA facing the Fresh Pond. The site has been abandoned for many years in spite
of the prime location. The proposal carefully considers visual lines of adjacent properties toward the pond view. A high density multi family building, with a commercial ground floor with variety of apartment layouts and sizes from studio to 3 bedrooms. Parking for the residents is provided on ground behind the commercial portion of the building and several spaces are accessible from the side of the lot for commercial use. The stepped unit organization allows for views and terraces for all of the units and is making use of green roofs to achieve a sustainable design.
