Cambridge panel OK’s Google’s expansion

Revised proposal gets City Council’s, neighbors’ support

Cambridge City Council voted Monday night to approve a plan for Google Inc. to increase its Kendall Square office in an expansion that would halve a public rooftop garden.

The proposal sparked an outcry late last month when it was presented to the City Council by Boston Properties Inc., Google’s landlord, after some councilors and residents said they were surprised by losses to the park, which sits atop a Kendall Square parking garage and is protected by an open-space covenant.
