Frost Terrace Wins Unanimous City Approval

Blog / February 6, 2018 by Bruner/Cott

Last month, the 1791 Mass Ave/Frost Terrace project was unanimously approved by the Cambridge Board of Zoning Appeal. This development will create 40 new, long-term, completely affordable homes for families and individuals in the Porter Square neighborhood. It is transit-oriented, providing future tenants with immediate pedestrian and bicycle access to the Porter Square T and commercial district, reducing the need to own cars.

The hearing lasted 3.5 hours, with deliberations surrounding issues such as lack of parking spaces. However, the design team did receive praise for its responsiveness to the comments of the Planning Board and the project’s ability to house “40 families who otherwise wouldn’t be able to live in Cambridge.” By the end of the evening, all five board members voted in favor of the permit.
