Chestnut Hill, MA July 14, 2016 – The Bulfinch Companies, Inc., a private real estate investment, development and management firm, announced today that it has leased 115,000 square feet of space at Atrium Center in Chestnut Hill, MA, to Life TimeSM – The Healthy Way of Life Company. As part of the collaboration, Atrium Center, a state-of-the-art, LEED certified property, has been renamed Life Time Center, a one-of-a kind wellness and medical destination exemplifying health, wellness, fitness, nutrition, and beauty. The new Life Time Center will be anchored by the premier Life Time Athletic Chestnut Hill destination, which provides an unparalleled, resort-style health, sports, professional fitness, entertainment and lifestyle experience.

The planned mid-2017 opening in Chestnut Hill, will represent the third Life Time destination in the Boston market, including the upcoming July 14 opening of Life Time Athletic Boston Metro West in Framingham and Life Time Athletic Westwood, which opened in 2015. 

“Bulfinch is extremely proud to have Life Time as its anchor tenant at the new Life Time Center,” commented Eric Schlager, CEO at Bulfinch Properties. “Life Time brings a unique, 360-degree approach to health, wellness, rejuvenation and entertainment that is completely aligned with our vision for a one-of-a-kind wellness center in Greater Boston. With Life Time as our anchor tenant and our rebranding, we are confident that we have developed the most attractive option for medical users in the suburban arena.”

Life Time Center is a 286,000 sf mixed-use asset prominently situated on Route 9 East, at the gateway to Chestnut Hill’s well-established retail, business and medical corridor, and is in close proximity to the world-renowned Longwood Medical Area. The building features large, efficient floor plates, a sunlit atrium, a 1000+-car free parking garage, and convenient access to public transit by way of a private Life Time Center shuttle to the MBTA Chestnut Hill green line. In addition, the property is just steps to over 1 million square feet of urban conveniences within three newly reinvented mixed-use developments.

Construction is now underway on the new Life Time Center. Bulfinch’s President, Robert Schlager stated: “Bulfinch will deliver a state-of-the-art LEED certified facility that will be the preeminent medical and wellness asset in greater Boston. Chestnut Hill is home to many leading medical institutions and retailers and we look forward to creating the finest facility in this corridor.”

Bulfinch and Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (NGKF) are finalizing medical leases and will continue to market the medical offices at Life Time Center on third and fourth floors, which can accommodate medical and lab users of varying sizes. NGKF’s Executive Managing Director Frank Nelson and Bulfinch’s SVP of Leasing, Michael Wilcox will lead the leasing team for the medical offices at Life Time Center.

The new, 115,000 square foot Life Time Athletic Chestnut Hill destination will offer a health, fitness and wellness experience unlike any other, led by highly trained and certified team members who are committed to providing an experience of uncompromising quality to its members. A broad array of highly personalized programs and services will allow members to engage in their areas of interest and help them achieve their total health objectives, athletic aspirations and fitness goals.
