Located in Boston’s Allston Brighton neighborhood, Boston Landing is the City’s newest dynamic district. Boston Landing’s motto “Life Works Here” promotes an integrated life/work/play/gather area and has become the City’s new health and wellness district. Full build-out of the approximately 15 acres of land along the Massachusetts Turnpike in Boston’s Brighton neighborhood is anticipated to be completed in the early 2020s. The project includes up to 2.5 million square feet of office, lab, retail, residential and sports uses, anchored by the New Balance World Headquarters, Boston Bruins Practice Facility, and the Boston Celtics practice Facility. The Site will feature over 800,000 square feet of lab, research and office space, curated retail, a 295 residential building, a 175 room hotel, track and field complex and open green space. Boston Landing features a new commuter rail stop developed and financed by NB Development under a public-private partnership agreement with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) and MassDOT. The Site is situated on the Massachusetts Turnpike and provides extensive pedestrian and bicycle accommodations.

Key Takeaways: Come hear how NB Development is transforming this former Brownfields industrial site that once served as the region’s largest stockyard into the City’s new health and wellness district. The project has landed a string of life sciences and technology companies such as Bose with the creation of the Boston Landing Commuter Rail Station built from the public-private partnership.

At the turn of the 21st century, Boston’s Seaport District included approximately one million square feet of brick and beam buildings containing businesses of all types—as well as 50 acres of parking lots.

And this is only the beginning. The Seaport is a microcosm of the diversity of Boston’s economy, where tech employees rub elbows with scientists and professional service providers, exemplified by the array of progressive office spaces in the district. Join local experts on a tour of the Seaport, including a visit to innovative spaces and an overview by the key principals from WS Development, a firm responsible for more than 23 acres and 7.6 million square feet of mixed-use development.

 


Kendall Square  |  Tour Sponsor: Alexandria Real Estate
Fee: $30.00
ne_mit_volpe_sketch1.png Kendall Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts is known as The Most Innovative Square Mile on the Planet. This compact and dynamic innovation cluster houses more than 20 million square feet of offices and labs—and for several years has had a vacancy rate in the low single digits.

What makes Kendall Square unique is the enormous concentration of incubators and co-working environments, venture capital firms, non-profit research organizations and companies ranging from entrepreneurial start-ups to leading multinationals, such as Biogen, Novartis, Pfizer, Akamai, Google, Amazon and Microsoft, all within short walking distance to MIT, one of the world’s premier research universities, and just minutes away from Boston’s extraordinary hospitals and other academic institutions.

The CoreNet Global ERS Kendall Square tour will help you discover this unique innovation ecosystem. Tom Andrews, Executive Vice President of Alexandria Real Estate Equities, the district’s largest commercial landlord, will present the Kendall Square real estate story, followed by a walk-through two unique spaces. The first is the Alexandria Center at One Kendall Square, an 800,000-square-foot, mixed-use, urban campus with state-of-the-art labs and offices in a renovated factory over 100 years old. Next is a visit to 399 Binney Street, a brand-new life science building also on the campus. From there, we will walk to the regional offices of one of a soon-to-be-announced tech titan to learn about what brought them to Kendall Square.
