Cushing VillageBelmont, MA Summary Size, Scale & Mass We have provided a contextual basis for determining the impact on neighboring properties forsize, scale, and mass. The By-Right view and light angle provides a means of evaluating whether the size, scale, and massadversely impacts the neighbors. Site sections along with the shadow studies show that the impact on the revised proposal iscomparable to the By-Right impact. The Fourth Floor has been reduced so as to have minimal impact on neighboring properties. The Hyland is designed to transition to neighborhood scale and to provide a complement to the otherCushing Village buildings.39
