Woulda, coulda, shoulda

In its development stage, this property at 309 Massachusetts Ave was a yogi’s dream: a beautiful new space for yoga and wellness led by some major names in Cambridge / Boston yoga. Despite the hype, the project withered and the space never opened. According to the neighbors, the yogis overspent on construction and the project was shuttered mid-project. But this prime empty Mass Ave location is not a victim of the economy, but rather a victim of MIT’s new policy of “evaluating” all of its current property holdings in Cambridge. Learning this made me curious-how much property does MIT own in Cambridge, and what are its policies towards community development with regards to its vacant commercial properties?

  1. Don’t know if you’re following it, but Bob Healy said this week he’d like to attract a discount clothing store (Marshall’s, TJMaxx) to the Pearl Art storefront. And Gus Racontore reports on several new eateries moving in nearby.

  2. Wow, that might actually be a good addition to the square. It would certainly draw a lot of business. What do you think?
