Major Harvard Square redevelopment to get public airing

Plans call for mall-like complex

Equity One, the would-be re-developer of the string of Harvard Square buildings that contains the world’s only Curious George store as well as Urban Outfitters, is holding a public information session on Tuesday, February 7.

The plans for the properties—5 and 9-11 John F. Kennedy Street and 18 Brattle Street—have proven controversial.

That’s not necessarily because they might send George and the Man With the Yellow Hat packing, but because the plans would supplant the current buildings with a kind of mall-like structure. (See the renderings herein.)

Anyway, Equity’s ears are open and nothing’s finalized. The public hearing is at 6 p.m. at the Gutman Conference Center on Appian Way.
