District Avenue, Burlington, MA
The District Burlington is transforming a 9-to-5 1970s office park into a 24/7 walkable mixed-use neighborhood. The District Burlington’s centerpiece, the 11-story, 200,000 square foot Building 700 prominently visible from nearby Route 128, has been thoroughly renovated. An 80,000 square foot, four-story glass-curtained addition has been built with floor-to-ceiling windows, an open floor plan and a private roof deck.
Existing office buildings at The District Burlington are being upgraded with new lobbies, entries and plazas. A new 170-room Marriott Residence Inn hotel and six new retail spaces are being constructed at The District Burlington. Tavern in the Square, TD Bank and Tuscan Kitchen are now open at The District Burlington, with Island Creek Oyster Bar and Pressed Cafe soon to follow. The District Burlington’s main artery, District Avenue, has been transformed into a pedestrian artery featuring widened sidewalks, bike sharing stations, lush landscapes and outdoor seating. New pocket parks and nature trails now line District Avenue.
