Bowdoin Geneva Main Streets Partners with MIT Students to Rejuvenate Commercial District
Boston, MA – Following a three and half-month partnership with the Bowdoin Geneva community, students at MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning will present a commercial district plan to neighborhood residents and business owners, outlining physical design and business development interventions. Long portrayed as a neglected area, the presentation will provide the Bowdoin Geneva community multiple methods to discard its negative image, and reimagine how its commercial district operates.
