Bulfinch Partners with Colliers Boston To Lease 1560 Trapelo
NEEDHAM, MA, May 23, 2016 – The Bulfinch Companies, Inc., a private commercial real estate investment firm, announced today that it has selected the Colliers 128 team, comprised of Jim Elcock, John Carroll III, Bill Lynch, Tim O’Brien, and Lauren Harvey, to directly lease 1560 Trapelo Road, a 61,000 sf state-of-the-art office building located in Boston’s premier suburban market of Waltham, Ma. The property is owned by an affiliate of The Bulfinch Companies, Inc., a Greater Boston private commercial real estate investment firm with 80 years of market expertise, and previously served as software and technology giant, Autodesk’s, headquarters.
“We are excited about working with Bulfinch to bring this unique, ‘high tech‘ headquarters opportunity to the marketplace for the first time since its 2008 construction for Autodesk,” noted John Carroll of Colliers. “Ideal for both office and lab users, it provides everything companies are looking for today and more – cutting edge technology, LEED Platinum certification, open collaborative landscape, and great natural light, all with superior highway visibility and signage potential to any other options in the market.”
1560 Trapelo Road is immediately accessible off of Route 128 at Exit 28 directly in the cloverleaf and offers a convenient and superior [alternative] Waltham location with LEED certifications, unparalleled highway visibility, ample structured and surface parking, and close proximity to Waltham and Burlington retail. It presents a tremendous plug & play opportunity for companies seeking an urban feel within a suburban context, all of which the team had an opportunity to showcase at its May 10th “Taco Tuesday” broker open house.
Bulfinch’s Director of Leasing, Mike Wilcox, noted that "it was exciting to welcome more than 60 of the area’s top real estate professionals to the building. We are long term, committed owners and look forward to working with Colliers to identify the next tenant who will call 1560 Trapelo ‘home’.”
