Kendall Square’s Firebrand Saints (1 Broadway at Broad Canal Way) will close on Oct. 15 after a six-year run to make way for construction brought about by the MIT Kendall Square Initiative, says owner Gary Strack.

“So many people have told me how their start-up got funded at Firebrand, how they got a job there, how they did business deals there. It was a neighborhood space for Kendall, and I’m proud of that,” he says.

Strack will continue to run Cambridge’s Brick & Mortar and Central Kitchen.
