Consider adding a pedestrian bridge from bike path to Fulkerson St park. This would connect Wellington - Harrington / King School to East Cambridge / Kennedy School.

Thanks for your comment, Cindy. The City of Cambridge is doing the design of the Grand Junction bike path and looking into access points as a part of that process. Below is a link to the project website.

Please add more retail along Binney st. Right now, the only restaurant options are Bon Me and Sumioa. There has got to be more room for things like a Starbucks, Dunkin, CVS, barber, nail salon etc. Right... Read more...

Don't know what you are planning to have regarding retail. I would like to see this neighborhood have a much stronger retail base.

Thanks for reaching out with your comments. This site will not have any retail as we are working to support our locally owned retail and restaurants at One Kendall Square.

Kendall Square already feels very corporate and sterile. Any effort to add locally owned and distinctive retail to the area is welcome. Also, more landscaping and trees.

I know that space -- yet another wasted opportunity: that area needs another "sustainable science and technology building" like the Seaport District needs another bistro. That whole area is looking like... Read more...

Science and Tech buildings actually use HUGE amounts of energy and also generate a lot of noise. Not that it's a building type/industry which should be banned, far from it, but folks should understand... Read more...
