MIT's Kendall Square Initiative

On April 8, 2013, the City of Cambridge approved MIT’s petition to transform 26 acres of Institute-owned property in the Kendall Square/East Campus area in order to bring new vibrancy to the Kendall Square Innovation District. The new zoning preserves existing academic development potential and enables the creation of new housing, retail, lab and commercial space, as well as more engaging open space and wayfinding. Below you will find news stories describing the evolving proposal since May 2010 with links to MIT’s public presentations, and an array of related news articles. The full text of the new zoning language and MIT’s letter of commitment are also available for download.
