One of the most prominent luxury apartment compounds in Central Square is the University Park Cambridge complex. Constructed on a former manufacturing company site, the designers of University Park took a vacant property that was distressed and abandoned and turned it into an ultra-modern and luxury apartment complex.

Filled with various size apartments located in several different buildings, University Park has more amenities than any complex in the area. Some of these amenities include entertainment areas, event facilities, fitness area, media area, and dining.
