Watson Street Lot

Watson Street Lot

In early 2015, the Community Development Department (CDD) will begin a public process with members of the community to develop recommendations for potential future uses for the currently vacant lot at 89 Brookline Street, on the corner of Brookline Street and Watson Street. The lot was donated to the City by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

The recommendations will inform decisions about future short- and long-term uses for the site.
