Roux Institute at Northeastern University

Portland, ME

Roux Northeastern University - CambridgeSeven

A high-tech hub for learning, research and collaboration rising on Portland’s waterfront.

The Project

With a passionate vision to attract young tech-focused learners and researchers to Maine, Northeastern University’s Roux Institute will provide state-of-the-art academic and lab space on the edge of Portland’s scenic Casco Bay. CambridgeSeven’s design repurposes the retired B&M Baked Beans Factory site to create a resilient waterfront with restored habitats and public recreation space. Classrooms, labs, and start-up incubators will be housed in a renewable energy-powered building with integrated landscape and green-roofs. Outdoor park space with seating, a café, and a waterfront dock will be accessible to visitors and locals, as well as those on campus.
