Walk + Bike + Drive Everywhere
346 Allston Street is located one block from the Charles River bank and bridge, where Cambridge Port meets Riverside – two picturesque residential neighborhoods filled with unique historic homes and converted industrial buildings.
Though it is largely residential, street corners are home to small bodegas and local restaurants, including a nearby lobster shack and seafood grocer. The ultimate in urban convenience, it is a short stroll from Whole Foods River Street, Walgreen's, and Memorial Plaza, which features Trader Joe's, Starbucks, and other retail outlets.
As you walk north, you will find the urban vibrancy of Central Square and its many restaurants and shops, along with MBTA Red Line access. Walk deeper into the Cambridge port neighborhood and you will enjoy tree-lined streets, historic homes, and many recreational parks from Dana Park along Magazine Street to Hastings Park on Brookline Street. Walk west and you are rapidly in Harvard Square. Walk south, and two bridges, the BU bridge and Massachusetts Avenue bridge, lead you into Boston! It is a 25 minute scenic walk to Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox.
Green spaces abound around the site, including the Charles River Bike Path, which runs along the scenic river edge and offers the most stunning views of the Boston Skyline, and Magazine Beach Park, Cambridge’s second largest park with an outdoor swimming pool, soccer and baseball fields, and outdoor exercise equipment. A great spot to launch your kayak into the waters of the Charles River. Playing tennis or basketball? Hoyt Field and Riverside Press Park have tennis and basketball courts. Play ping pong? Fulmore Park features stone ping pong tables.
And finally, this is also within walking distance – under half a mile - to several world-class universities, including MIT, Harvard University, and Boston University, as well as to Kendall Square, the largest biotechnology and life sciences cluster in the world.
And if you are commuting, the Mass Pike I-90 and Storrow Drive are just a few blocks away, across from the Western Avenue and River Street bridges.
