Harvard University announces more detail on its Allston expansion

Today’s (October 19, 2012) Harvard Gazette provided a link to Harvard’s announcement concerning its filing yesterday of plans for its expansion in the Allston neighborhood of Boston, MA.

Allston is located on the south side of the Charles River from the area in Cambridge, MA we have most discussed. The future Harvard Medical School relocation two blocks south of the main site shown appears to be key in the worst environmental destruction going on.

Here are two maps from the report, one an apparent satellite view, the other more detailed. Full explanations are at the link below.

The street going through the middle of the main area shown leads directly to Harvard Square and the main Harvard University campus, on the north side of the Charles River.
