800 Cummings Center
181 Elliot St
Beverly, MA 01915
Map It!

A top-to-bottom restoration performed in 1998 transformed this historic, former United Shoe Machinery Corporation building into the contemporary 800 Cummings Center. Located in Beverly, Massachusetts, the building overlooks a freshwater pond within the vast Cummings Center business campus, which comprises more than 2 million square feet of space.


Prior to restoration, the long-neglected industrial property, located on a former brownfield site, was part of a 10-year, $50-million renovation project by owner Cummings Properties. Cummings Properties installed an entirely new HVAC system featuring water source heat pumps, and central cooling towers and boilers. The company also replaced hundreds of exterior windows with insulated, tinted glazing systems that were assembled on site. Many light fixtures were upgraded to high-efficiency lighting during a 2009 campus-wide retrofit. 


Cummings Properties worked closely with National Grid to obtain efficiency incentives for the renovation of the entire Cummings Center campus. The on-site building management and maintenance crew monitor system operation closely, thereby helping to maintain efficiency and customer satisfaction.


Just one mile from Route 128, "America's Technology Highway," Cummings Center is a 25-minute drive from downtown Boston and Boston's Logan International Airport. Beverly and its surroundings offer the accessibility and quality of life for which the North Shore of Massachusetts is renowned.
