The Cambridge Innovation Center, (CIC) where I work, has signed a new lease for 52,000 square feet of space on the 1st, 14th and 15th floors at 101 Main Street in Cambridge. 101 Main Street is two doors down from CIC’s current home at One Broadway. The new location is owned by RREEF Real Estate, the real estate investment business of Deutsche Asset Management.
CIC has already vastly expanded since I first started working there in the Spring of 2010; currently, some 450 companies and 1700 people rent space on seven floors.
According to a recent communiqué from the CIC, “ We have seen strong continuing interest from the CIC community to grow here in Kendall Square, as well as interest from many others not currently located at CIC. This new space will create increased space options and amenities for our current and future clients and most importantly, the space will create more opportunities for entrepreneurs to collaborate and flourish.
This is a 33% increase in the CIC”s total space — to a total of 207,000 square feet in Kendall Square. Occupancy of the new space will begin in early March.
With the expansion, I hope that the stellar CIC team and residents will be able to maintain the warm, friendly and stimulating community atmosphere that makes the CIC at 1 Broadway a wonderful place to work.
