Yes, that's the one element of this that I don't absolutely love. Landsdowne is kind of a special place in the history of Kenmore/Fenway music culture, and essentially all that remains of something that was once far more significant. Recognizing that much of the current usage has already turned away from that past, I still kind of don't want to see a big landscraper replace the buildings that once housed legendary clubs.I’m not a fan of the commercial use for the Lansdowne parcel. That’s a spot for something loud and fun (the building will literally be hit by home run balls!) not more offices or labs.
As I said, though, I absolutely love the rest of it and can't begin to get over my excitement about how this will complete an amazing growth era for this neighborhood, completely stitching together Kenmore/BU with Longwood and the Back Bay.
