...and then in 2015, Boston Properties renamed the Cambridge Center development to be Kendall Center anyways. Thus pointing to both the fragile impermanence of corporate marketingspeak names, and to the enduringness of what the general public tends to refer to things as notwithstanding the former.1982-85 Kendall station was named MIT/Cambridge Center officially. Change took effect same time Columbia was renamed JFK/UMass. They un-did the name change back to Kendall after 3 years due to (un)popular demand.
(and here I refer to Boston Properties as Boston Properties even though they want to be called BXP now...and I and everyone else will always refer to their "200 Clarendon" as the Hancock Tower. Maybe the real take-away of all of this is: don't let Boston Properties name anything).
