Cambridge, Mass. — A $30 million renovation is underway at CambridgeSide Galleria, a 1.2 million-square-foot, mixed-use development located roughly two miles outside downtown Boston in East Cambridge.
New England Development will rebrand the shopping center as CambridgeSide. Renovations at the property — set for completion in October — include a comprehensive makeover with the incorporation of transparent railings, seamless glass storefronts, new lighting, improvements to the heating and air conditioning and the installation of new escalators throughout. Hospitality seating areas, state-of-the-art wi-fi and outdoor bistro seating and comfortable gathering spaces along the Charles River will also be added during the repositioning.
The development is currently home to tenants including J. Crew, Club Monaco, A|X Armani Exchange, Abercrombie & Fitch, Banana Republic, Macy’s, H&M, Express, Forever 21, Sephora, The Cheesecake Factory and World of Beer. All stores and restaurants will remain open during the renovation.
