Thank you for the feedback, Mike. European public realms are amazing and we are hoping to create a similar outdoor atmosphere here in Cambridge!

Eric, revitalizing the streetscape to include fun, original, and affordable options is a strong focus of ours.

Cindy, thank you for your input! We understand the need for housing in the immediate area and are examining the best options to suffice this need.

Rachel, thank you for your thoughts! We agree that an indoor kayak space would greatly benefit not only Paddle Boston but also those renting kayak equipment. We are also looking at ways in which we can enhance the water quality of the Broad Canal, which is incredibly important to the local area.

Manuel, we were not involved in that development proposal so unfortunately I do not have an answer for you.

We are focusing on the existing building located at One and 101 Main Street, which abuts the Broad Canal.

A small dog area is a great thought. In an extensive urban environment, there should be more welcoming spaces for dogs.

Andy, what kind of restaurants or shopping experiences do you think would fit best?

Sally and Sarah, these are great ideas. We feel it is important to include amenities that not only benefit the community, but also bring them together.

Yes, we believe that attractions focused on local arts initiatives and aimed at all demographics could bring this area of Kendall Square back to life.

Ben, we also believe that the waterfront is currently underutilized and could really take on a new life through dining and landscaped open spaces.

This is a great idea that could potentially transform Kendall Square into a place where families want to bring their children!
DWS commented on Broad Canal Subdistrict Zoning & Development 11 months ago
We agree that a diversity of retail is important in order to cater towards all demographics, especially within the Kendall Square neighborhood.

Bjorn, a drugstore along the lines of a CVS or did you have something else in mind?

Bethany, we agree that landscaping is essential to bringing this area to life. Trees are a great way to not only provide shade, but also increase the appearance of the area.
DWS commented on Broad Canal Subdistrict Zoning & Development 11 months ago
Phil, that is a great thought. In a predominately developed area, pockets of landscaping can really transform an area, which is our goal with this site.

Hugh, a fence is definitely important to avoid any dangerous situations.

This is an awesome idea, thank you for sharing!

Dan, unfortunately there are factors that restrict the extension of the canal. Enhancing the existing conditions with amenity spaces, such as a park, will help to reinvigorate the area.

Joseph, a large focus of our proposal is to activate the ground level of Main Street and the Broad Canal to bring this area back to life for the community. The improvements here will be extensive and have a major impact for the residents of the City.

Quinton, we are taking a hard look at different ways to reach a net-zero status. We are aiming towards assisting a local non-profit organization with their efforts towards affordable housing.

Sally, we are currently looking into different forms of retail that could fit best in Kendall Square. What kind of retail would you be interested in?
DWS commented on Broad Canal Subdistrict Zoning & Development 11 months, 1 week ago
Thank you for your input, Joseph. We agree that a continuous neighborhood feeling is important to the development.
