Alewife Neighborhood

Open Space Connectivity Plan


  • Cambridge Redevelopment Authority


  • Gamble Associates

The Challenge

Rindge neighborhood is a residential community located between the Alewife MBTA station, recreational amenities, the Fresh Pond Shopping Center and Danehy Park. However, the community lacks convenient access to these amenities. Physical barriers thwart the potential to facilitate movement and take advantage of natural resources.


The plan overcomes existing infrastructural barriers by going over, under and alongside them, improving pedestrian and bicycle connectivity for the neighborhood while defining development parcels.

The Results

The connectivity plan resulted in an RFP for mobility improvements and conversations with adjoining property owners are underway to share in the project’s implementation.
