A look at Facebook's New Boston Office

via Bostinno

Facebook is planning to hire more than 500 employees for its new office in Cambridge, according to Ryan Mack, Facebook Boston site lead, who discussed more the move and the company’s hiring plans.

“We’re always hiring,” Mack said in an interview. “We’re actively recruiting and I’d be happy to talk with people.”

Here’s what we know so far about the new Facebook office (and the types of jobs it’s looking to hire).

The new office

The company moved from its current location at One Broadway to 100 Binney St. The two locations are less than a 10-minute walking distance from each other in the Kendall Square area. Mack said that the new space is around 130,000 square feet, so six times the size of the current space.

How many positions?

Mack estimates that the new space has a capacity of 650 employees. Currently, over 100 people work in the Boston office.

What profiles is Facebook Boston looking for?

Primarily, technical and engineers. “We are hiring software engineers focusing on infrastructure, mobile application development, networking, compilers, data warehouses, machine learning experts and data scientists,” Mack said. In the Facebook Boston location, employees focus on machine learning and how to scale machine learning efficiently, among other things.

How to apply?

Currently, the Facebook careers page lists 20 openings for Boston. The company is looking for software engineers with different specializations, including machine learning, traffic infrastructure, iOS and Android. Minimum qualifications include bachelor’s or master’s degree in computer science or related fields and at least one year of software development experience (but requirements may vary). There are also tech openings for university grads, interns and Ph.D. university grads.

The construction of 100 Binney Street remains on schedule using Touchplan, a construction software that allows developers to plan, implement, and monitor projects in their entirety. The innovative software gives developers the ability to see the full spectrum of their project down to every last detail. Touchplan has let developers keep their projects on or ahead of time leading to lower costs and more efficient construction.

W. L. French completes mass excavation at 399 Binney, upcoming lab and office building in Kendall Square

W. L. French Excavating Corporation has completed the mass and footing excavations for 399 Binney Street, an upcoming 172,500-square-foot lab and office building located in Kendall Square, one of the United States’ strongest life sciences real estate markets. W. L. French has hauled and disposed of over 60,000 tons of soil, and is currently preparing and installing basement slab subbase materials. As part of W. L. French’s contract to install site utilities at 399 Binney, work has begun to connect water services to the project site. W. L. French will install water infiltration, drainage and sanitary sewer systems throughout the site in Spring 2018. 399 Binney’s excavation is supported by an internally braced support of excavation system, which was installed between May and July 2017.

Completion of 399 Binney is expected by the end of 2018. The building will be built to LEED Gold efficiency certifiable standards and will also include a 1,500-square-foot ground-floor retail space. 399 Binney is part of the existing nine-building One Kendall Square office and retail campus, which 399 Binney developer Alexandria Real Estate Equities acquired in November 2016 from DivcoWest for $725 million, or $1,124 per square foot, one of 2016’s most significant real estate sales. Space at 399 Binney is now available for lease, with demand reportedly strong; overall, the Cambridge lab real estate market has a microscopic vacancy rate below 1% per Lincoln Property Company's latest Cambridge Office & Lab Market Report.

Shire, a leading rare disease-focused biotech firm headquartered in Ireland, has subleased 220,000 square feet from Ariad Pharmaceuticals at 75 | 125 Binney Street, a newly built 380,000-square lab/office building in Cambridge’s Kendall Square. Shire, Massachusetts’ second-largest life sciences employer, expects to move into the building in the first half of 2018, with fit out currently underway.

Cambridge in the Lead: An Overview of Development Transforming the Ever-Dominant Cambridge Market
- Sep 17, 2017

By Michael Hoban
Sunday, September 17th, 2017



An aerial view of Cambridge’s Kendall Square, one of the most desirable locations nationwide for technology and pharmaceutical companies.


It should come as little surprise to anyone remotely connected with the commercial real estate (CRE) industry that the Cambridge CRE market is one of the – if not the – dominant life science and technology markets in the world today. Even with very little space available for both lab and office space, and developable parcels at a premium, Cambridge – particularly Kendall Square – still remains the prime target of technology and pharmaceutical companies seeking access to the highly-educated talent pool that Cambridge offers, despite soaring rents.


“When you think about the future of Cambridge, I think the rents are going to be in the $100s [per square foot (PSF)],” predicts life science and technology specialist Steve Purpura, Executive Managing Director at Transwestern and leader of the commercial brokerage’s Cambridge team. “There is very little limitation to what people would pay if they can get in front of the right labor, and that great labor is coming out of MIT and Harvard, and is working here already. Quality space that’s available for lab is essentially zero for the next 12-18 months, and the office market has got a little more that’s available – but not much.”


Purpura was the moderator for the recent NAIOP panel discussion “Cambridge: Still in the Lead,” held last Wednesday at the Hyatt Regency Boston. The panel featured representatives from the market’s most prominent property owners and developers, including Tom Andrews, Senior Vice President with Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Bryan Koop, Executive Vice President for Boston Properties’ Boston Region, Steven Marsh, Managing Director of Real Estate for the MIT Investment Management Company (MITIMCo), and Keith Wallace, Senior Managing Director and Head of Acquisitions for DivcoWest’s eastern region operations.


Purpura began the discussion by restating the importance of the Cambridge address to the world’s leading tech and bio companies. “When Facebook came into Greater Boston (looking for space), they didn’t even look in Boston, and I think that’s pretty indicative of what’s happened in Cambridge,” he told the gathering of approximately 450.


Purpura set the stage for the discussion by reminding the audience that while Cambridge is now viewed as the “absolutely bulletproof” darling of investors, it wasn’t always the case. He pointed to the post-dot-com bubble burst, where vacancy rates for both lab and office exceeded 25 percent. He also cited the potential pitfalls that Cambridge may face when competing with markets such as New York and the San Francisco Bay Area, including cost of construction, permitting issues and a lack of incentives. “So let’s enjoys the ride – I think we’ve got some legs left in us, but let’s look over our shoulder and see what our blind spots are and how can we get better, because not that long ago, it was not that great.”


Andrews led off the presentations with an overview of Alexandria’s Cambridge activity, which has been robust for over a decade. The Pasadena, CA-based firm owns and operates 5.85 million square feet of life science, office and lab property in Massachusetts, with 4.85 million square feet of that portfolio located in Cambridge and the inner suburbs. Alexandria recently made headlines when they brought their soon-to-be-completed 431,500-square-foot 100 Binney Street property in Kendall Square to 100 percent occupancy with the signing of Facebook to a 150,000-square-foot lease, in addition to venture-backed biotech startups Foghorn Therapeutics, Sigilon Therapeutics, Tango Therapeutics and TCR2 Therapeutics to approximately 22,000-square-foot leases each. 100 Binney will be anchored by Bristol-Myers Squibb, who has leased 208,000 square feet.



Kendall Square’s 100%-leased 100 Binney Street


Alexandria acquired 303 Binney Street, the 3.63-acre former Metropolitan Pipe & Supply site in Kendall Square, for $80 million in the spring, and has broken ground ground on 399 Binney Street, a speculative 172,500-square-foot building on an undeveloped parcel at the 7.88-acre, 644,771-square-foot One Kendall Square campus. “We’re going to hold that property long term, and we’re going to make good sound investments,” says Andrews of One Kendall, envisioning the kind of success the firm had with the 1.2-million-square-foot Technology Square, acquired in 2006.



399 Binney Street.


DivcoWest’s Wallace believes One Kendall, which Alexandria purchased from DivcoWest for $725 million in November 2016, has a huge upside. At the time of purchase, the building was fetching $50 PSF net rents for lab and $50 PSF gross office rents, according to Wallace. “We grew those rents to $60 PSF and $60 PSF – net and gross respectively, and when we sold the building to (Alexandria), we had just done an office deal at $75 PSF, and a 10,000-square-foot lab deal at $70 PSF net. People are going to think I’m crazy, but I don’t see why that real estate – in such close proximity to MIT – is not going to be worth $2,000 a foot.”



One Kendall Square.


Koop discussed two of Boston Properties’ current projects in Kendall Square: 145 Broadway, a 19-story, 453,768 square foot office tower dubbed the “Akamile” by Akamai Technologies, Inc., who has leased 100% of the building, and Proto, a 274-unit apartment complex located at 88 Ames Street featuring 16,000 square feet of retail. Koop describes the Akamile as “the most sophisticated building that our company has ever worked on – in terms of what’s going on, how it operates and the thoughtfulness of how the human beings inside these buildings work together. The client said to us, ‘We want to have the most connected building – ever – so that our people can connect with each other.” The “mile” refers to the passages throughout the building that connect their people, that when tallied up, total close to one mile.



145 Broadway/The Akamile.


Proto is a 22-story tower that will contain a mix of micro units and one and two-bedroom configurations, with 36 apartments designated as affordable. It is expected to help meet the needs of knowledge-based workers in the Kendall Square area, while creating a more active pedestrian friendly streetscape between Main Street and Broadway. What is also significant about the project is that it was not an actual buildable site. “We worked with the city to take a piece of the road to come up with a site because residential was that important to the Cambridge Redevelopment Authority,” explained Koop.





MITIMCo’s Marsh began his segment by discussing the three principal trends in the market: Innovation and Collaboration, where information is moving so fast that it is paramount for organizations to be near the source of the knowledge; Urbanization; and what he described as the “notion of convergence”, where multiple disciplines such as engineering, data and life sciences are integrating to solve complex problems.


MITIMCo is finishing up the permitting process for the 1.9-million-square-foot MIT Kendall Square Initiative project, which will be comprised of office, residential, retail, research/development, and graduate student housing space. MITIMCo is also in the process of permitting and rezoning the massive, 14-acre Volpe Center site, located in the heart of Kendall Square. “We’re trying to create the right environment in Cambridge, because it is about people,” says Marsh. “It’s about creating a place where people want to be, and we’re trying to integrate what we do into the fabric of the city, creating new innovation capacity, amenities, housing and a variety of other things that we think make really good communities.”

Wallace brought the gathering up to speed on NorthPoint, the fully permitted, 45-acre development site in East Cambridge that has changed hands multiple times since Spaulding and Slye first broke ground on the project in 2005. It has remained a source of puzzlement and frustration for previous developers, which Wallace acknowledges. “Obviously, it’s had some fits and starts over the last 20 years, so it’s an ambitious play, but I think we were attracted to what was going on in Cambridge with close to zero vacancy in the office market.”


NorthPoint is permitted and planned for 2 million square feet of science and tech space, 2.4 million square feet of residential and also 100,000 square feet of retail, which Wallace believes is the key to the project’s success. And while there has been no commercial tenant that has “taken the leap of faith,” DivcoWest, in partnership with The HYM Investment Group, is constructing a 430,000-square-foot speculative science and technology building at 250 North Street in NorthPoint, which should be delivered by the second quarter of 2019. A second 400,000-square-foot building at NorthPoint is in pre-schematic design. “Our idea was always to be prepared for a large-use – a la Amazon,” Wallace joked. “We’re not ambitious enough to go spec on lab…but we’ll feel the market out.”

Facebook leasing top three floors of new 100 Binney office building in Kendall Square

Facebook has reportedly leased the top three floors of the newly built 10-story 100 Binney office building in Kendall Square, amounting to 129,636 square feet. Facebook will open a new office at 100 Binney in 2018 with capacity for up to 650 employees. The company will hire more than 500 new employees, becoming one of Cambridge’s largest employers. Facebook currently occupies an 18,500-square-foot office at One Broadway in Kendall Square, with capacity for up to 150 employees.

Per a Boston Globe report, Facebook’s new office will focus on providing mobile and data center support to Facebook’s 2 billion users, as well as serve as a hub for machine learning. The office will also focus upon building more efficient networks with telecom companies and partnering with hardware manufacturers for new product development.

Alexandria Real Estate Equities, a major player in the Kendall Square real estate market, has acquired 303 Binney Street, a 3.63-acre Kendall Square industrial property, for $80.25 million, or $22.1 million per acre. 303 Binney Street last sold in May 1967 for $78,000.
