Ennead Celebrates the Topping Out of Cambridge Crossing: Parcel U

Divco CX Parcel U s08 Hero Daytime

Together with DivcoWest and our collaborators at Jacobs, we celebrate the topping off of 441 Morgan Avenue.

This project is a LEED Gold state-of-the-art life science facility that sits at a major entry to the Cambridge Crossing neighborhood. We took sustainability and context sensitivity as the two main drivers of the massing articulation and façade design. These principles produced a building with distinct faces: the north sides are a glass curtain that opens to the street and park, while the south façades use smaller windows with cutting-edge dynamic glass to minimize solar gain.
