Cambridge, MA – CambridgeSide recently celebrated a milestone in the construction process: the placing of the final beam for 20 CambridgeSide, located at the corner of Edwin Land Boulevard and CambridgeSide Place in Cambridge.

When completed, 20 CambridgeSide will be a 350,000sf life science building as part of six interconnected buildings totaling 2 million sq. ft. of office, lab, residential and hotel uses.

“We are pleased to mark this milestone in the development of CambridgeSide. Over 30 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,” says Stephen R. Karp, chairman and CEO of New England Development.

Following a multi-million dollar rebranding and renovation, CambridgeSide features two levels of shops and restaurants, including 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. The construction sequence has been designed to minimize impacts to the surrounding community, pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles.
