In this case the NIMBYs were right. Yes, it would have cost Middlesex County some bucks to demolish this eyesore, but that's the cost of correcting a huge mistake. A low/medium rise complex of retail, residential and office could have been built instead of perpetuating a monstrosity.It serves as a big reminder of the futility of NIMBYism. The fantasyland effort to get the building torn down went on for far too long, and now it's payback time! The uglier this building becomes during it's rehab, the more I like it! Turn it into Cambridge's version of the Hurley building!
But, as has been said, it's a done deal.
