If/when Station Park gets built, that should be an excellent location.

In the grungy looking office building next to the old McDonald's at King and Moore. Extremely odd location, especially given their wonderful buildings in Cambridge and their positioning as high end coffee. But they brew a good cup, and the owners are wonderful, so I'm sure I'll still be worth a checkout!

Have you seen this building lately??? It was recently renovated and it looks great (even though they covered and painted some of the nice mid-century features).

Oh, I've not! I just remembered walking around it around the time the grade separation was completed and it being overgrown and just generally bleak and doctor's-office-looking. Glad it's nicer now.

I'm second guessing myself as to if I know which building this is.  Is it fronting on King?

This is not an odd location. It's literally next to Google, and it's great to see things starting to pop up in Midtown! much needed. I hope more local businesses follow. There's barely anything to serve those neighbourhoods at the moment.

Thank you!

It's a very nondescript building, that's for sure.

It's a decent example of the mid-century architecture, including the combination of brutalist bare concrete and the stone façade. But more suburban than urban, to be sure.
