Join Common Boston on a walking/food tour around the award-winning, master-planned development of Kendall Square.This area of town is rapidly growing into a community of world-class office and lab space, beautiful apartment towers, restaurants, and retail shopping linked by 2.5 acres of lush, landscaped open space.
Led by David Downing, Director of Leasing and Development at Graffito SP, a local urban advisory firm that specializes in community and economic development, the tour will take us through the most recent additions to the Square and highlight the less traffic "places in between". You'll have a chance to meet local business owners, learn about food, sample the flavours of the place, network and explore the urban environment around Kendall Square. David will share stories and his point of view on the adventures of urban place-making in complex mixed-use neighborhoods.
Meet at Common Wealth (11 Broad Canal Way Kendall Square, Cambridge MA 02142) and then on to Za Restaurant, Kika Tapas and more! See basic route map here. We will be walking and stopping for bites during this 90min. - 2hour walking tour.
