Being a member of the City’s East Cambridge/Kendall Open Spaces Planning Team (ECKOS for short), allows me to stay on top of things that are going on in this part of town — and there is A LOT going on!

The state has selected Leggat McCall Properties to redevelop the Sullivan Courthouse in East Cambridge from the final three developer candidates. The good news: anything will be an improvement over the current asbestos-laden eyesore that is the Courthouse. The bad news: Leggat McCall’s plan, which is almost all office space, was the least popular option among the East Cambridge community. Most area residents had expressed their desire for a better mix of residential, retail and community space, such as that proposed by HYM Investment Group, and are now not being shy about expressing their disappointment…


For those of you following development plans for North Point, here’s a link to the latest plans, which increase building height to allow for more open space and a more community feel. Makes sense to me…
