Notwithstanding this week’s winter storms, steel erection has topped off at 450 Kendall Street in Cambridge today (formerly referred to as Parcel G). Biomed Realty is the owner, John Moriaty & Associates (JMA) is the builder, and Arrowstreet, the architect, for this jewel-like building in the heart of Kendall Square. Centrally located amidst the life sciences and high-technology companies and MIT, the anticipated use is hosting a mix of scientists and entrepreneurs.
When completed, the faceted, glass façade will both make visible the uses within and refract the light of the sky and surroundings. The ground floor will have restaurant or similar uses opening out onto an active park and canal connecting to the Charles.
