Alewife Park

Cambridge, MA

Alewife Park is a new research and technology park situated adjacent to the MBTA Red Line's Alewife Station in Cambridge, a sought-after destination for life sciences firms in the greater Boston area. The 26.5-acre development will transform an outdated office park, which includes seven multi- and single-story structures, into state-of-the-art life science space. VHB guided this development through the state and local permitting processes, including the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act; Project Review Special Permit, pursuant to Article 19.20 of the Cambridge Zoning Ordinance; and the Notice of Intent, pursuant to the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act. In addition, we designed the infrastructure to support the phased build out over several years, including utilities and roadways, addressing pedestrian and vehicular access and connections to the surrounding community. Alewife Park is expected to be fully built out in 2024.
