What’s Happening at ‘Bence Pharmacy’ Site, Mass. Ave. & Everett

Submitted by on October 12, 2017 – 4:54 pmNo Comment

The photo essay below is by Stephen Diamond and chronicles changes at 1607-1615 Mass. Ave., corner of Mass. Ave. & Everett St., sometimes called the “Bence Pharmacy” site by long-time Agassiz residents. The site, owned by Harvard University, was formerly occupied by Central Barber, 3 Aces Pizza, Crimson Cleaners, Fancy Fingers, and Looks clothing boutique. It has been vacant since 2007 while Harvard conducted a remediation process to remove dry cleaning solvents beneath the building and the street. A new building, constructed by the University, will house legal offices related to Harvard Law School and ground floor retail.
