EF Education First AG announced a broke ground on a new, 300,000-square-foot facility to serve as its expanded North American headquarters. The 55,000-square-foot development parcel is prominently located in the North Point area of Cambridge, next to EF's existing, 250,000-square-foot building, beneath the Leonard P. Zakim Bridge, and adjacent to North Point Park and the Charles River. The 10-story building will feature 230,000-square-feet of office and education space and a 65,000-square-foot above-grade structured parking garage with 126 parking spaces and a dedicated bike room for EF employees. It will also include 31,000-square-feet of public space on the ground and mezzanine floors, a 14,000-square-foot restaurant with 440 seats and tiered outdoor seating wrapping around the entire building. The building design features a striking glass 'waterfall' cascading down the facade, which reflects the facility's close proximity to the Charles River. Architect Gert Wingardh conceptualized the building to reflect the design aesthetic of surrounding landmarks including the Zakim Bridge and the turrets on the Museum of Science.
