An eastern gateway to MIT at the current site of the T stop across from the Marriott Hotel is part of MITIMCo’s vision for Kendall Square. One possible view of the gateway is depicted in this model, which sits in a room on the ground floor of 1 Broadway, where there will be an open house on Saturday, March 23, at 10 a.m. and on Tuesday, March 26, at 6 p.m. MIT would like to develop the area for a mixture of commercial, residential, and “innovation” purposes, with open spaces and inviting storefronts at the street level.



MIT plans to construct commercial, academic, and residential buildings on what are currently parking lots. In this model from MITIMCo, the three near white buildings are possibilities for commercial buildings on the south side of Main Street. (In the foreground are the Green Building and East Campus dormitory.)



Shown in white in this model from MITIMCo are three proposed lab or commercial office buildings along the south side of Main Street. (The Media Lab appears at the left.)
