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.

CambridgeSide—which was one of the first urban, enclosed shopping centers in the United States, is now being reimagined. A dramatic modernization, to be completed this fall, will enhance the shopper experience, open up the mall’s entrances to the dynamic East Cambridge neighborhood, and expand the customer base. CambridgeSide’s exciting evolution is creating a fresh and vibrant place to shop, dine, and, connect.
