About The Arsenal Project

Formerly the Arsenal Mall, the Arsenal Project, located in Watertown, MA, is just a few minutes away from Cambridge, MA. This small, enclosed shopping center is the perfect venue for shopping in Cambridge and the Greater Boston area.

The project is an indoor space, so it is a great place to go when it’s raining or snowing. It also makes holiday shopping all the greater, because you can cross off everything on your list without having to put on the coat.

For the history buffs out there, you should know the project was built in an old US Army Arsenal (hence its strong, broad name!).

More recently, the mall served as a command center to catch the suspect of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. We are #BostonStrong, and the mall is #WatertownStrong, too.
