East Cambridge/ Kendall are neighborhoods that people live in, not just work at tech companies in. All construction projects should take that into account and plan to preserve the neighborhood for families and residents as much as for commuters

There must be intentional, sophisticated, and impactful climate mitigation and resilience features in this and any new building. That includes internal climate regulation features (ex: windows and shades that regulate temperature without over reliance on air conditioning and heating, orientation of the building and windows), power conscious features (motion sensor lighting to save electricity, passive solar capture) green roofs, integrated storm water capture & re-use, use of light colored and less carbon intensive materials. This is only a small subset of the available options for climate resilient and restorative buildings! Kendall is home to some of the brightest minds out there - use them to make a smart building!!

There are very few gyms in Kendall. The ones that are here are massively overpriced. A gym that is not hyper specialized (for ex: spinning or rowing) and accessible to people that don’t make Kendall tech salaries (ie monthly membership fees under 90+$) would be a huge benefit. A produce market (similar to Neighborhood Produce that has 2 other locations in Cambridge/Somerville) that has fresh local produce at accessible prices would be a game changer. This area has only Star market in McGrath (~20-25min walk) or Brothers (right next door on Main, but pricier and not great quality esp for produce) Having business that serve not just the people that work in Kendall but the folks that actually live here would be a sincere show of desire to improve the community and serve the people, not just the tech giants.
