Re: Cambridge Developments

^ yes but this is the classic cambridge issue du jour

very residential motifs directly adjacent to hyper dense biotech/lab/engineering office buildings...a few blocks down this same street!

cambridge is in the midst of an epic identity crisis...and zoning is lagging big time. the city is at a total crossroads about what is is / can be / should be.

Re: Cambridge Developments

To be fair, it could just be that the investor didn't have the capital for something larger, and it's not as though this development doesn't fit its neighborhood. A midrise would be preferable but this is far from the worst thing.

Re: Cambridge Developments

It is a very small parcel. I think anything large enough to have an elevator would be a non-starter.

That's a really good point.

Re: Cambridge Developments

It looks like the Curious George Store will stay in the newly renovated mall development in Harvard Square. The store will still have to move, assuming the current space will still be turned into a lobby for the new development.
