It looks like there’s a new plan for the Kendall Yards project. Greenstone Corp. has purchased the property and has plans to build a scaled-down version of the mixed-use community seller Marshall Chesrown originally had for the land.
Why am I blogging about that on a transportation blog? Because it could change the way transportation works in the area. Chesrown had planned to build 2,500 homes in the area. Greenstone is cutting it back to less than 1,000. That means less traffic congestion getting into and out of the area. There had been talk of putting either a stoplight or a roundabout on Monroe Street at the north end of the bridge to facilitate the flow of traffic. Looks like the City will have to re-evaluate the situation to see what would work best on an already busy road.
