Property Details

Apartment 142 units

Historic Loft Living. KBL is like no other place. Once a busy bakery and home to the Newton Cookie, this mill-style building is truly unique. Images of yesterday are in full detail today. Floor plans capture features from the original architecture. KBL sits at the center of both academic and cultural landmarks. Superior amenities bring it forward. The location the same since 1875. It is now the cornerstone of University Park.

For over 100 years The F.A. Kennedy Steam Bakery turned out such treats as the Lorna Doone, 5 O'Clock Tea, and of course the Fig Newton.*Today, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and home to 142 unique apartment homes. The mill-style building, constructed in 1875, now houses a variety of sun-drenched living spaces including one and two bedroom apartments, three bedroom townhouse duplexes, and artist's lofts.*The building's original architectural details include expansive ceiling heights, oversized windows,exposed brick walls, columns, and beams that have all been incorporated into these spacious, open apartments. Each renovated home offers quality finishes and interesting details while preserving the historic character of the former bakery.*Located on theUniversity Park @ MIT campus, Kennedy Biscuit Lofts offers easy access to everything Cambridge has to offer. Restaurants, shops, and nightclubs are just a block away. Right on thecampus you will find a full-service grocery store, parking facilities, hotel, banks, and the award winning University Park Common. Public transportation runs right outside your door and MIT and Harvard are both within walking distance.
