North Point/Cambridge Crossing, a former industrial site, is now one of Cambridge’s major mixed-use districts. The City holistically guided the area’s growth as a planned development area, and providing expanded public transportation and active transportation facilities was central to its transformation. As the neighborhood has transformed, so have the area’s transportation needs.
Join us on a walking tour to see the bike, pedestrian and transit connections that integrate this neighborhood into its surroundings. We’ll visit North Point Park, a new regional park with bicycle paths, pedestrian paths and bridges created with mitigation funds from the Central Artery Tunnel Project (the “Big Dig”). We’ll stop by four buildings developed by EF Education First for its headquarters and for the Hult Business School. We’ll also check out Cambridge Crossing, a multimillion-square-foot mixed-use development. Finally, we’ll see the new Lechmere station anchoring the extension of the Green Line MBTA system, as well as a multi-use path that connects the line to a network of major bikeways.
