Just how open will MIT’s planned ‘gateway’ be?

In reference to Paul McMorrow’s April 30 op-ed column “MIT’s next big hurdle in Kendall Square,” it’s good to hear that Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s “plans for remaking Kendall Square in Cambridge are stuffed full of huge numbers and huge ambition.” However, the school’s East Cambridge neighbors are not all students, tech companies, start-ups, blue-chip firms, or retailers.

I wonder about neighbors who have low incomes or the homeless, for example. With all the resources, intelligence, and creativity available in this initiative, can’t this ambitious “new gateway” into both MIT and Cambridge consider them in their plans?
