290-292 Main Street Update
Facade Install Underway for 290-292 Main Street in Kendall Square
While concrete for the 19th and 20th floor of MIT's 290-292 Main Street is being put in place, facade install has started on the lower floors of the project. The facade features bronzed anodized aluminum panels at slight angles broken up by three-story window groupings. When complete the 28 story tower will include 450 graduate student housing units along with offices space for MIT admissions and a child care facility. Around 10,000 square feet of retail will also be included in the project.
Two existing buildings on the site are undergoing renovations and are being incorporated into the new tower. Construction is set to be complete in 2020.
