District Burlington Entrance Identification

The District Burlington is a 13 building, 54-acre office complex in Burlington, Massachusetts, outside of Boston and part of the Route 128 high-tech corridor. The development, previously called the New England Executive Park, was built in the 1960s through the 1980s. While the location in the Boston area’s technology hub was highly desirable, the facilities were showing their age and no longer made sense for modern workplaces.
