Longtime Jamaica Plain resident Omer Hecht's CatLABS is back in Jamaica Plain after a five year hiatus in which he needed to move the business out of the neighborhood. CatLABS began in 2010 in a Brookside Avenue building that served as a collective for artists. Sadly, that building was sold, razed, and the property was redeveloped. Unable to afford the new building, CatLABS moved. And on February 23, Hecht moved back into the neighborhood, opening a new location at 3514 Washington St.
