Cambridge, MA CambridgeSide celebrated a milestone in the construction process, the placing of the final beam for 20 CambridgeSide, located at the corner of Edwin Land Blvd. and CambridgeSide Place. 20 CambridgeSide when completed will be a 350,000 s/f life science building as part of six interconnected buildings totaling two million s/f of office, lab, residential and hotel uses.
“We are pleased to mark this milestone in the development of CambridgeSide. Over thirty years from the inception, CambridgeSide continues to be at the forefront not only as a premier shopping destination but evolving to a prominent place to work and live within the vibrant East Cambridge community,” said Stephen Karp, chairman and chief executive officer of New England Development.
Following a multi-million dollar rebranding and renovation, CambridgeSide features two levels of shops and restaurants, including sought-after brands such as Apple, Sephora, and The Cheesecake Factory. The 20 CambridgeSide building will have direct access from the second floor lobby to CambridgeSide’s two levels of retail and eateries.
CambridgeSide’s redevelopment is being completed in multiple phases, while keeping CambridgeSide shops and restaurants in full operation, serving the community. The construction sequence has been designed to minimize impacts to surrounding community, pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles.
The reimagined CambridgeSide is a place to shop, dine, work, indulge and relax. CambridgeSide features a waterfront location with shops, restaurants and planned future office, lab, residential and additional retail, restaurants, and green spaces. CambridgeSide’s mix of retailers includes Apple, Superdry, Sephora, T.J. Maxx and more. The diverse mix of restaurants includes The Cheesecake Factory, in addition to over 12 other eateries. GoPixelYourself is a new selfie museum featuring an immersive video experience. CambridgeSide is located near top tourism attractions including the Museum of Science and Charles Riverboat. CambridgeSide is handicapped and MBTA accessible (Green Line T to Lechmere Station or Red Line T to Kendall Square to the free CambridgeSide Shuttle Bus), and offers attached, covered parking
