Arrowstreet renovated two MIT-owned buildings in the Cambridgeport neighborhood, an area which is evolving into a recognized regional center for life sciences and technology. These two buildings form a small campus with adjacent open space and parking. 17 Tudor Street, a 1920s brick masonry building with a heavy-timber frame and generous window openings, supports office uses. 130 Brookline Street, a 1920s building with buff-colored masonry over a concrete frame, also offers large windows; its renovation, including the addition of a mechanical penthouse, accommodates laboratory uses.
