Being custom designers and fabricators of corporate spaces, we’re always eager to hear of new developments. This time a mixed-use 45-acre development called Cambridge Crossing is set to become a tech and life science hub at the convergence of Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville.

Two structures within the community complex are already underway in the construction process, including a 430,000-square-foot office building that’s designed for science and tech groups. The mega-development is set to include 4.5 million-square-feet of mixed-used space, and is an affordable alternative to Kendall Square, a Cambridge neighborhood that houses large tech companies such as Amazon, Google, and Facebook.

Seeking to create a district for those in the tech lifestyle, Cambridge Crossing will include nearly 2,400 condos and apartments and five office buildings. Additionally, there will be an extensive ground-level retail commons where residents and visitors can shop and dine. An eleven-acre public park is also set to fit in the campus’ center.

Naturally, custom office spaces within the development have been largely targeting tech, life science, and research groups – all industries that are thriving in Boston. The site also is a contender to house part of Amazon’s second headquarters.

The development is being built in what’s described as Cambridge’s “last frontier,” the city’s largest remaining untouched neighborhood. This tech hub will be even more accessible to commuters with the relocation of a Green Line rail stop just four minutes away.

While there isn’t a timeline for construction yet, the development is expected to gain momentum with interest from organizations who seek cheaper spaces with more amenities in Boston. This space will be sure to be a hit amongst tech gurus and visitors alike, and as architectural interior designers, we look forward to seeing the progress of this innovative East Coast utopia.
