North Cambridge along Pemberton St and Richdale Ave has some nice high density housing built along the Fitchburg Div RR, where it used to be light industrial back in the 50s and 60s. Time to do this type of development Belmont.I think it's also important to remember that industrial/commercial zones along train tracks isn't surprising because presumably some of the original tenants were freight serviced. It's like the industrial zone along the Medford Branch past Ball Square. It historically made sense to plan it that way; not that we necessarily need to continue with that zoning (although provisioning for a short-haul freight-capable future is something to consider).
