Architects Exhibit Redevelopment Plan for Area South of Square

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A general plan calling for the location of the College's two new Houses behind Dunster, a "fraternity row" along Mt. Auburn St., and the banning of all private vehicles from the Square was presented yesterday by the fourth year students of the Graduate School of Design.

The problem set before the architects was to redesign Harvard Square South, an area bounded by the Charles River, Massachusetts Avenue, Holyoke St., and Putnam Ave. Detailed studies were made for the construction of new commercial buildings near the Square and a housing development near Dunster House.

Approximately one parking space for every five College students has been provided for in a huge underground parking lot. These spaces will be rented by the University for a nominal fee. Massachusetts Avenue, according to the plans, will be closed to all traffic except buses. Mt. Auburn St. will become the central artery.
