What is this building in Kenmore Square with the murals done by JP art students?

This building @ 482 commonwealth ave has been boggling my mind. Its your typical brownstone, but its been abandoned and boarded up. On the boards, there's a bunch of artwork and murals done by some JP students. What gives? what is this place? Why is prime realty abandoned in kenmore square? Anybody know anything about it?

not a direct answer to your question but a step in the right direction. this page lists who owns the property.

And continuing the cyber-sleuthing... I assume "MARGOLIS CALVIN ETAL" is actually "Margolis, Calvin, et al." Whether it's the past fashion designer or not, I have no idea. (But he does seem to be from the Boston area.)

Still doesn't explain what's going on with the with building, though.

It's been like that since I left the neighborhood in 2003, and (as far as I can remember) for the 4 years preceding that when I was in school. I never even knew where the murals came from, so you've obviously done more sleuthing than I ever did. I hope somebody here can give you a good answer. (And man, do I miss India Quality all of a sudden!)
