About Us

A partnership between the City of Newton, Town of Needham, the Newton-Needham Regional Chamber, area real estate holders and local businesses, the N2 Innovation District houses some of the nation’s most forward-thinking companies. This area, bordered by I-95, is comprised of multiple distinct neighborhoods of varying architectural styles, offering everything from high-quality retail to modern class A office space to restored mill buildings and industrial workspaces. We not only have great restaurants but also bars, cafes, lunch places, shopping and amenities to meet everyday needs, all close to offices and living spaces. 

Newton and Needham are home to some of the most innovative talent in the country. Residents here have more patents per capita than almost anywhere in the nation. Our neighbors include people on the cutting edge of business and innovation, ranging from CEOs of major corporations through employees at some of the world’s hottest startups.

The N2 Innovation District is a place close to home where they can create and nurture new technologies and entrepreneurial businesses.

Served by the MBTA Green Line, bus service and commuter rail, as well as two exits from I-95, the N2 Innovation District stands at the nexus of transportation, providing easy access to workers of all backgrounds, education levels and skillsets.
