The evolution of Kendall Square is the story of a once-thriving industrial strip, turned urban wilderness, turned home to one of the greatest concentrations of innovative companies in the world. MIT is adding over 4.6 million square feet of new laboratories, work spaces, residences, cultural attractions, and retail at the heart of this center of invention and discovery. It will be a place more open, more vibrant, and more connected; an even stronger force for inquiry and inspiration; a new home for extraordinary talent; and an accelerator of growth.
This is the future of Kendall Square, powered by MIT.

LEADING EDGE SUSTAINABILITY,
FOREFRONT OF RESILIENCY
MIT is committed to making a better world, and that includes protecting the environment. Facing this challenge requires ideas that are incremental and unfamiliar, disruptive and game changing. MIT is uniquely positioned to test these ideas as a center for research, as a builder and operator of best-in-class real estate, and as an active contributor to local sustainability initiatives.
The Kendall Square at MIT buildings will not only achieve USGBC LEED Gold ratings, but will leverage the latest technologies and smart design to make spaces that work for people.
