CBT is working with Twining Properties and partner Normandy to envision a new future for three critical blocks at the intersection of Massachusetts Ave and Main Street
near Central Square in Cambridge, MA. At the heart of already vibrant and diverse Central Square, the new development will replace approximately three city blocks currently occupied by Quest Diagnostics and empty lots with a vibrant mixed use community including open space, residential, commercial and retail uses.
The highly participatory planning process for this development is using a unique tool called MindMixer to solicit community ideas on the Mass+Main location, place-making, program, urban and building design, offering the community an online platform to voice their vision. While MindMixer has been used over 400 cities across the US, this is the first time it will be used by a private developer.
