270 Third Street
270 Third Street is the first residential building in a new science park in Kendall Square, serving as the end cap to two large laboratory buildings on the same block. The building is comprised of two intersecting rectangles, one continuing the regular geometry of the adjacent building and the other responding to the angled street geometry. Contrasting materials – Roman iron spot brick and white terra cotta – also differentiate the two volumes. Ground floor retail spaces flank the entrance lobby and activate the urban experience. This building has a large supply of studio apartments, with one and two bedroom units at the ends. Balconies overlook the new Rogers Street Park to the north and a dramatic corner bay on the southwest corner marks the entrance to the science precinct. Residents share parking with the adjacent laboratory building and enjoy urban amenities such as a pet spa and a roof deck garden overlooking the city.
