Re: MXD II | 325 Main St. | Kendall Square

Funny, the ground space retail is Urbanspace, 2 foodhalls in Midtown. The one by Grand Central is claustrophobic and downright scary at lunch time.

The ping pong shots, I swear came from Spin, a local ping pong bar. Lots of fun until some tennis hero needs to show off and ruin it for everyone.

The other common spaces look very WeWorky. Some day, we will regret the medium brown wood / exposed concrete / black painted metal look.

The inevitable shift towards a mundane rectilinear building.

Oh man, for some reason I thought they were basically going to build on top of the existing building. This is going to be a construction nightmare. Not looking forward to this.

Indeed, but Kendall already is/will be a total construction nightmare now and for the next 5+ years with the six MIT Kendall gateway projects on two sides of the Marriott (give or take), this one right next to it, and the entire Volpe development behind it.

...brace for impact
