About Education First Phase III (EF III)

10 North Point Boulevard, North Point, Cambridge, MA

Upcoming 12-story, 300,000-square-foot mixed-use building to be developed in Cambridge's North Point district on 2.87 open acres of land. EF III will feature top-notch student housing, educational, office, and retail space, and will allow Education First (EF) and Hult International Business School to expand their North American operations, enhancing the institutions' existing North Point international campus and providing students with a new on-campus housing option.

EF III's ground floor will feature a bike room, a fitness center, and a fitness-related retail space. Upper floors will contain a mix of uses, including approximately 161,343 square feet of student housing containing approximately 278 units and 500 beds across the top seven floors, 22,754 square feet of office space, 14,566 square feet of student cafeteria and restaurant space with approximately 400 seats, and 13,873 square feet of student lounge and administrative space. 59,695 square feet of above-grade structured parking will be located within the building.

Open green space will be created on the EF III site, including a flex-field large enough to accommodate a 5v5 soccer match. A vegetated area in the western corner of the site, referred to as “West Park”, will provide a quiet public area for passive recreation and would feature attractive seating areas with planted trees. The project is being planned in coordination with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and the Division of Capital Asset Management & Maintenance (DCAMM), and will provide $20.4 million in funding for environmental cleanup and the relocation and construction of a new permanent DCR maintenance and operations facility; an existing DCR facility is located on site.

The EF III project aims to provide a missing link between existing park spaces at North Point Park and North Point Commons and will activate a site currently barred from public use. The project will eliminate the gap on North Point Boulevard between residential uses to the north, office, educational space and park uses to the south and the future residential and open space uses to the east. Initial occupancy of EF III is anticipated in Late Spring 2019; construction began in October 2017 and will take approximately 22 months. The following are renderings of EF III:
