Sitting close to the junction of route 128/95 and the Mass Turnpike, Riverside has the potential to expand into a regional transportation hub serving the Metro West area with badly needed mass transit. Surrounding it with a massive development would block the future growth of transit capacity needed to realize that potential.

Agreed Riverside is not much of a transit hub now, but it could become one if it is not overbuilt, and if the MBTA, Newton, and nearby towns are willing to invest in desperately needed additional transit. Without more transit, the Riverside area will choke on traffic.

Infrastructure first! Embellishments later!

Yes, Waltham, Wellesley, Needham & Weston do all have large commercial developments along the highway. In all cases, the residential sections of the town ends where the commercial section begins, and there is no further residential section on the other side. Needham and Wellesley have parts of their town on the opposite side of the highway than where most of their town is located, but that portion is entirely commercial.
In Newton, Lower Falls was already somewhat cut off from the rest of Newton by the highway. Whats left of the connection will be virtually severed by putting an enormous commercial development

Please Newton, state, & MBTA officials do this the right way & the right size. I agree with the comment above.

Totally agree! There is such an easy transit connection there that would make such a big difference in public transit accessibility and use.
