Video: 7 reasons living at Proto’s Kendall Square apartments make so much sense
It has been called the “most innovative square mile on the planet,” a neighborhood where you’re either busy running the internet or curing cancer. The Kendall Square buzz also makes it an ideal place to call home. Cue Proto, a brand-new apartment building that is as forward-thinking as its surroundings.
The location alone of these Kendall Square apartments is enough to move in. To get the picture, watch our latest video — but you’d better hurry because Proto is nearly 90% leased!
Here are 7 reasons why living at Proto’s Kendall Square apartments makes so much sense:
1. It’s on the Red Line
Step outside and find yourself at the Kendall/MIT T-stop on the Red Line. We’re not kidding. That’s really all it takes to reach the MBTA hub, which offers a quick connection to Harvard to your north and an immediate southbound link to Charles/MGH, Park Street, Downtown Crossing, and beyond.
2. It’s so close to Harvard and MIT.
Bike, walk, or ride public transit. The options are many, but the result is the same: it takes no more than minutes to reach your destination. Both Harvard and MIT are practically your next-door neighbors when you live at Proto’s Kendall Square apartments. By bike, you get to Harvard in 10 minutes. MIT? Divide by 5.
3. It’s in the most bike-friendly cities in the country.
Move over, Boston. Cambridge ranked among the top 10 Best Bike Cities in America when Bicycling magazine released its 2018 ranking last fall. (Only by big cities like San Francisco and Seattle beat it out.) With a near–perfect Bike Score, Cambridge rates as a “Biker’s Paradise.” Good news: Proto offers both onsite bike storage and repairs/tuning thanks to a partnership with a local bike shop.
4. It features tons of jobs.
Kendall Square is like a Who’s Who of tech giants. If you’re eyeing jobs at Google, Facebook, Apple, Sanofi, Akamai, Amazon, Biogen, or the Broad Institute, you find them all within blocks of Proto. Startups also sprout on your Proto doorstep. Treat them as your personal smorgasbord. Which one will you pick?
5. It’s a special time in Kendall Square.
“Kendall is in a really special time.” Few people can speak those words with more confidence than Nicole Yiu, a Proto resident and owner of Vester, a newly opened restaurant opposite Proto on Ames Street. The influx of young people living and working around Kendall Square has brought a hard-to-match energetic vibe to the neighborhood.
6. It’s right by whatever you crave.
Are you in the mood for Mediterranean flavors? Then, you hardly need to leave your Kendall Square apartment at Proto. Cava Grill is located on the first floor, where Blue Bottle Coffee is also soon scheduled to open its fourth Boston location. Beer? Meadhall, a stylish gastropub with an ample craft beer and mead selection, is just around the corner. Across the street, you find sister spots Vester and Dumpling Daughter. The list goes on.
7. It’s an unbeatable location.
Go kayaking. Yes, it’s so doable when you live half a mile from the Charles River. With a Kendall Square apartment at Proto, you easily can reach other neighborhoods, too, like Harvard Square, Somerville, and downtown Boston. The options are endless and accessible.
