Urban Design Goes Suburban

If you think you need to be in the heart of Boston or Cambridge to lease office space with the chic and modern vibe of an urban center, think again. The new Innovative Suite at Cummings Center in Beverly harkens back to the industrial boom of the early 20th century while incorporating contemporary office design elements similar to those that draw pioneering firms to Kendall Square and the Seaport District.

Once the largest concrete structure in the world and home to United Shoe Machinery Corporation, Cummings Center is now a hub of commercial real estate opportunities. It’s home to hundreds of businesses and a suite of restaurants and other amenities, yet it hasn’t strayed from its origins as a place of innovation. Today, this award-winning North Shore business campus provides offices, labs, and R&D space to thriving technology organizations like Massachusetts Biotechnology Council and North Shore InnoVentures, as well as brand marketing leaders King Fish Media and Marketing By Design.

For entrepreneurs in search of an office with an urban attitude, Cummings Center’s new Innovative Suites – such as those built by Cummings’ in-house design and construction teams for Quarto Publishing Group and DataOne Software – deliver. Paying tribute to the industrial roots of “The Shoe,” the modern 7,300-square-foot office space at 100 Cumming Center breaks free from the suburban office norm and features many finishes typically found in urban renovations.
