Re: Cambridge Developments

Cambridge universities' Town-Gown reports are now available.

Harvard's report includes recent, current, and future on-campus redevelopment [PDF]. They also emphasize their advocacy for West Station (including paying 1/3 the cost) and for more bike lanes on the river bridges and in their Allston developments (not included in this report).

MIT notes:
Quote:
The 730-750 Main Street block (in the “North” area of the Future Development Opportunities map) is an optimal size for a research & development building. MIT anticipates renovating the existing buildings into office and lab facilities to further support the innovation ecosystem in Kendall Square. In addition, redevelopment of this site would allow for the continuation of the emerging retail corridor along Main Street.

Another key step will be the redevelopment of the triangular-shaped 600 Main Street block. This site is relatively close to the core campus and its scale makes it an attractive site for academic research or administrative uses. The site also provides an opportunity to complete the street frontage along Main Street with retail and restaurant space on both sides of the street opposite Technology Square.
I've previously advocated for 600 Main Street as a great location for grad student/staff (and perhaps non-affiliated) housing--based on nearby buildings, it could easily reach 8-10 floors without much negative affect.

There are tons of data and figures available in these reports, including number of students, off-campus students, and staff, the transportation breakdown of students and staff, and tax and PILOT payments. I recommend looking through them.

121 First

Sampler (?)

Petco has vacated and a very large dumpster is next to the front door. Not sure if this is for the rubble from only the Petco space or an indication of the coming demolition of this group of buildings along First Street

Re: Cambridge Developments

This reclad has taken well over a year, which I find baffling.

I believe it's also a full interior reno.

I hope they don't screw it up with the cladding.

Re: Cambridge Developments

Those balconies are so much nicer than cantilever windows.

And what's wrong with bay windows for Christ's sake?

When you guys post these neighborhood shots, could you include the site address?

Revealing that eye catching glass bouquet is going to make McDonald's so happy!

...a building with (potentially) modest character stuck on a terribly awkward lot...

121 First is still under wraps, so nothing new.
