On behalf of the town of Needham, I want to welcome you to this informational website about business and development opportunities in the Needham-Newton Massachusetts innovation district.
The city of Newton and the town of Needham area are two forward-looking communities long known as good places to live and work, with good schools and services and active civic life. The corridor has ready access Interstate 95 and public transportation.
Recent and comprehensive zoning and development changes in the Needham Crossing area have provided improvements for both business and residents. These include denser development, a new direct access to the highway, relocation of Trip Advisor and other technology leaders to the business park, and allowance for residential apartments and supporting retail uses within walking distance.
The town is excited to be working with the city, with the Newton-Needham Regional Chamber of Commerce and with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on all of these efforts.
We are committed to sound, sustainable development that will benefit businesses, residents and communities now and in the years to come.
Chairman of the Needham Board of Selectmen
