Is it time for a Harvard room in Allston?

More than a year ago, Harvard opened a room in Harvard Square for people to learn more about Harvard's plans in Allston. Recently, Allston residents have correctly pointed out that this isn't particularly practical or useful for Allston residents who have jobs and can't get to Harvard Sq between 11am and 2pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays to take a look.

We all know that Harvard has a lot of empty office space in Allston. Maybe they could convert space in the KMart building into a "Harvard Room" here in Allston. Even if it was open one day a week (how about Thursdays from 2-8pm) it would give many people in Allston a chance to better understand Harvard's plans.

The exhibit could have, among other things, architectural models of the Allston neighborhood and the projects that Harvard has proposed, especially the buildings that Harvard wants to start building this year.
