    Sounds good to me

    The building there is an ugly, boring, one-story commercial pile of blah. If Berklee wants to finally give its students some real space, then, by all means, they should.

    That's the block

    between Belvidere and St Germain that currently houses McDonald's, a Korean restaurant and Berklee's mail depot/copy center.

    Floor-to-ceiling windows on the lower floors will bring light and life from within the building out into the neighborhood. - Berklee press release

    What else will be brought out "from within the building" is hundreds more oblivious froggers darting to and fro across Mass Ave. Fun.
