50 Cabot Street is located at the intersection of First Avenue and Cabot Street with tremendous visibility from Route 128.  It sits at the entrance of the Needham Crossing, gateway to the N2 corridor, which has seen significant investment by national office developers who are planning upwards of 800,000 SF of first class mixed use space.  Raanan Katz and his team join recent additions, TripAdvisor and Residence Inn by Marriott.

“We felt that Needham was an excellent choice for our office.  It is centrally located to our portfolio of properties and has great access and amenities”, said Kenneth Fries of RK Centers. “The MADOT “Add a Lane” project will create a new off-ramp from Route 128 that will lead directly into the park and will further improve ingress and egress”.
