A new Kendall Square startup, coUrbanize, creates websites which serve as a meeting place to hold community project and development discussions. This “has become a player in Cambridge civic life” according to Cambridge Daily.
coUrbanize recently took a look at “bankification” in Harvard Square and Central squares and compared the number of banks to cafes. This resulted in there being more banks than cafes lining up the streets. In order to attract more people to the city there needs to be more cafes than banks because cafes serve a more friendly atmosphere and meeting place for people to come and “hang out”. Cafes are decreasing in number on the streets of Cambridge where banks are starting to overfill the storefronts.
