Depiction of the 54 Loomis Street project based on Google Earth. This perspective is looking North East on Loomis Street from Depot Park. The glass on the first floor of the building closest to Loomis Street is where the retail would be located. Other building are depicted in gray to show scale.
I expect redevelopment in the Depot Park area to continue. The combination of the Minuteman Bikeway along with the improvements to Depot Park has made this an attractive area for retail and housing. There is still a large amount of vacant office space on DeAngelo Drive. With the bikepath and the bus route from Alewife, this area might be a place to market to technology companies that need to attract younger workers that live in greater Boston. One easy change to help make this happen would be to rename DeAngelo Drive to something like Technology Drive or Innovation Way.
