Welcome to a new kind of neighborhood
CX is an escape from the everyday. While there are parks to explore, events to attend, and restaurants to try within our bounds, we’re woven into the fabric of the communities that surround us – steps to the innovation of Kendall Square, the imagination of East Cambridge, and Somerville, and the energy of Boston.
What it means to be here
There’s an abundance of independent cafes, restaurants, breweries, and shops to explore in the city’s many squares and a great tradition of supporting local, small business owners who keep our communities vibrant. At CX the tradition continues with The Lexington, Café Beatrice, Tatte Bakery & Cafe, Geppetto, and soon Lamplighter Brewery, welcoming all.
Leading the Way
From Philips and Cerevel to Sanofi and Bristol Myers Squibb, CX has become a home to some of the world’s leading innovators working to solve some of the greatest challenges of our time – fueled by the intellectual capital of MIT, Harvard, and Kendall Square.
You can get about anywhere from here. At CX there are two MBTA stations including the Lechmere Green Line on-site and the Community College Orange Line minutes away, North Station one stop away, bus and EZ Ride shuttle services, Bluebikes, designated bike and walking paths.
CX Roads Lead to Honoring Local Trailblazers
At CX, equality and inclusivity are celebrated throughout the neighborhood with open spaces and roads being named after women who’ve helped pave the way for so many. In the late 1800s, Cambridge resident Gertrude Wright Morgan was a pioneer in the civil rights and women’s suffrage movements, having played an active role in the Niagara Movement and establishment of the NAACP. Today, she’s recognized in CX with a street named in her honor, building on the legacy of local leaders who fought for racial equity and justice.

A City with a Sweet Tooth
You may know that before Cambridge was an epicenter for biotech and life sciences, it was a hub for candy making, but did you know that Cambridge was also the birthplace of double-acting baking soda? Celebrate our great baking tradition by picking up essentials from nearby Elmendorf Baking Supplies or by grabbing a delectable pastry from Café Beatrice and Tatte Bakery & Cafe in CX.
A Place Worth Talking About
In 1876, the first phone call was received in Cambridge. Nearly 100 years later, an MIT-alum sent the very first email. The way we work and live was forever changed. Our ability to communicate across the vastness of space helps make collaboration and innovation possible at breakneck speed. And while we can’t imagine life without these technologies, there’s no replacement for connecting IRL. Join us here.
