Video: House at Center of Controversy Torn Down

Forest Hills videographer Hugh Mackay witnessed the tearing down of 21 Yale Terrace, a house at the center of an epic fight between the surrounding neighborhood, Bicon Dental and City Hall.

The former owner of the house claims that Bicon sent a straw buyer to purchase her home after she refused to sell it to them. The company plans to build an employee dorm and parking structure. The Gazette has followed this controversy in detail for years. Here’s an April 24 Gazette story on a demolition delay won by the neighbors with backing from City Councilor Ayanna Pressley.
