CambridgeSide is the centerpiece of a one million square foot urban mixed-used development located minutes from downtown Boston in one of the world's greatest high-tech/bio-tech innovation districts - East Cambridge, Massachusetts. With two of the nation's top educational institutions located within a five mile radius and more than 250,000 students attending college in Boston and Cambridge, the mall boasts a young and culturally diverse demographic. The center encompasses a unique mix of some of the best specialty retailers and restaurants in the country and generates traffic of 7 million shoppers per year.

A dramatic modernization is enhancing the shopper experience, opening up the mall’s entrances to the dynamic East Cambridge neighborhood, and expanding the customer base. CambridgeSide’s exciting evolution has created a fresh and vibrant place to shop, dine, and, connect.
