Environmental Secretary: Harvard Business School expansion on Charles allowed without review

This week’s Environmental Monitor provides a notice (http://www.env.state.ma.us/mepa/mepacerts/2011/sc/ad/harvardao.pdf) that Harvard can build in the last open space facing the Charles in the Harvard Business School for “Tata Hall.” No environmental review will be required.

This construction would create pretty much a continuous row of buildings facing the Charles River on the south side (Boston / Allston) between the Anderson Bridge and the Western Avenue Bridge, filling in what has been a nice lawn.
