Reviving an old thread (2 years inactive) to ask:
What's the deal with how little is going on at Central Square?
From this spot, at Prospect and Bishop Allen, you get a good idea of what a Potemkin Village Central Square is:
- Huge surface lots associated with the low-rise 45 Prospect/130 Bishop Allen. (nice locust trees, though. I hope they save some when development comes)
- Condemned stucco apartment block immediately north of the the surface lots (visible through the locust trees)
- Strange "suburban" massing of 45 Prospect/130 Bishop Allen
- A whole 'nother block of surface parking south of Prospect
All in a super-prime location close to the T, Groceries (3x), Convenience, Harvard, MIT and with super-high Walk-Scores.
Why does this all just sit and sit?
