Cambridge Highlands is a largely commercial area including the Fresh Pond Mall, Chipotle, Dunkin' Donuts, Trader Joe's, CVS, and other stores along Alewife Brook Parkway. The mall includes Whole Foods Market, TJMaxx, CorePower Yoga, and a movie theater.
The Alewife T-Station is just across the bridge from the mall. A corridor of railroad lines divides the adjacent office/industrial area into two parts, known as the “Triangle” (North Cambridge) and the “Quadrangle” (Cambridge Highlands). The residential core of the neighborhood is near the Belmont Line. The Fresh Pond Reservation in the middle of the area provides the perfect place for a walk or run.
