David Manfredi plans Kendall Sq

Harvard is bringing David Manfredi to Allston to plan Barry's Corner, which makes it interesting to look at his ideas for nearby Kendall Square (starts at slide 13).

The goals he identifies are:
• create places that expand the public realm and become a “common ground”
• respect the historic grid and scale of streets
• make more and better connections between community, commercial and academic land uses
• provide building opportunities for innovation tenants
• contribute to an integrated mix of uses in the district
• establish a prominent, welcoming new gateway to the Institute (MIT)
