Bulfinch Names JLL as Exclusive Leasing Agent at Cambridge Discovery Park
NEEDHAM, MA - April 16, 2014 - The Bulfinch Companies, Inc., a private Greater Boston commercial real estate investment firm, today announced they have appointed JLL as the Exclusive Leasing Agent of its world-class office campus, Cambridge Discovery Park.
With tree-lined streets, bike lanes, walking paths, and park benches, Cambridge Discovery Park is a sustainable urban oasis just minutes from leading life science and high tech companies as well as world renowned research and educational institutions. The Park, positioned to be the premier office and laboratory destination in Cambridge, is one of the city’s largest campuses after MIT and Harvard. Cambridge Discovery Park offers tremendous access with its location directly off Route 2 and just minutes to the Alewife MBTA station via a footpath or a private shuttle, and delivers the conveniences that today’s tenants demand with its full-service cafeteria, fitness center with a yoga studio, garage parking, and bike sharing program.
JLL’s John Osten, Peter Bekarian and Molly Heath will lead the leasing efforts for this first-class office and lab campus. “This project’s location, green space, amenities and ease of access are truly second-to-none in a very tight market,” stated John Osten, SVP of Leasing at JLL. “It's a fantastic development opportunity for somebody to have a real presence in what we think is the best business campus in the city.”
The 30-acre green-focused park is master-planned and permitted for 820,000 sf of total development, today consisting of two buildings, a parking garage, and an abundance of green space. Cambridge Discovery Park is currently home to such firms as Forrester Research, The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, and Genocea Biosciences which comprises 400,000 sf of LEED certified space. Approximately 420,000 sf remains for new Class A offices and laboratories.
”We are excited to work with JLL on this project,” said Michael Wilcox, Director of Leasing at Bulfinch. “Cambridge Discovery Park is an unmatched build-to-suit headquarters opportunity in a highly desirable location, and we look forward to collaborating with a strong leasing partner to bring other leading tenants to the Park.”
