This Somerville development cycle is going to make Peter Quinn a billionaire.

Re: Somerville Developments

In an interesting retail use, 434 McGrath (the new brick one with the rounded corner) is getting a comedy club:

Interesting indeed. There's already a brand new comedy club in Union (at Bow Market), so I'm wondering what the demand is for a place like this? For a while, Comedy Clubs were a dying breed around here. I worry about the niche use. But as a guy who goes quiet frequently (and even dabbles w/ the open mic thing), I'm happy to see another one in the area.

Chimera of a project at 300 Somerville Ave has updated drawings:

It's like they have the front end of a facadectomy and the back end of a repurposed church, and only one of those is actually old...

This is so much better! I don't see the point in keeping the weird double church in the back, but at least now the portion that fronts the street will look more "downtown" in design.

Re: Somerville Developments

Khalsa designs almost always get better after a run through the DRC.
