New location expands capacity, increases student resources and enhances access
Cambridge College recently announced plans to move its campus from 360 Merrimack Street to 280 Merrimack Street in Lawrence, effective September of 2016.
Located in the heart of the Riverwalk, the new location offers students large modern classrooms, improved technology, student-focused amenities such as a spacious computer lab and a One Stop Resource center, a cafe, ample complimentary parking, and easy access from major highways. Riverwalk Properties is a prominent asset of Lupoli Companies, the owner and developer of several mixed-use properties that encompass more than 3.6 million square feet of commercial space.
Cambridge College will occupy the fifth floor of the newly renovated building which will also provide greater efficiency in how we serve our students. An increase in enrollment coupled with a limited number of classrooms required that the college re-evaluate the efficiency of its current space. “We were fortunate to find such a beautiful space so close to our current office as it was also important that we limit the impact that relocation would have on our students, staff and employees, said Deborah Jackson, President of Cambridge College.
“This amazing new location will enable us to better serve our growing student population with state of the art academic resources,” said Catherine Koverola, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs.
“We are honored that Cambridge College has selected Riverwalk Properties as the location for their expansion north of Boston. As a leader and pioneer in adult learning, Cambridge College has shown an unparalleled commitment to the area’s diverse culture and we are thrilled to help facilitate their growth and development,” said Sal Lupoli, CEO and President of Lupoli Companies.
Construction of the new space is slated to be complete in the summer of 2016 with a move in date of late to mid-September 2016. The new address will be: 280 Merrimack Street, 5th Floor, Lawrence, MA, 01843. All of the Lawrence locations’ phone numbers, emails and fax numbers will remain the same. A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for October 2016.
