Boeing will be Kendall Square Initiative’s First Major Tenant

Boeing, the world’s largest aerospace company, will soon become part of the MIT/Kendall Square innovation fabric. The company has agreed to lease approximately 100,000 square feet at MIT’s building to be developed at 314 Main St., in the heart of Kendall Square in Cambridge.

The agreement makes Boeing the first major tenant to commit to MIT’s Kendall Square Initiative, which includes six sites slated for housing, retail, research and development, office, academic, and open space uses. The building at 314 Main St. (“Site 5” on the map above) is located between the MBTA Red Line station and the Kendall Hotel. Boeing is expected to occupy its new space by the end of 2020.

“Our focus on advancing the Kendall Square innovation ecosystem includes a deep and historic understanding of what we call the ‘power of proximity’ to address pressing global challenges,” MIT Executive Vice President and Treasurer Israel Ruiz says. “MIT’s president, L. Rafael Reif, has made clear his objective of reducing the time it takes to move ideas from the classroom and lab out to the market. The power of proximity is a dynamic that propels this concept forward: Just as pharmaceutical, biotech, and tech sector scientists in Kendall Square work closely with their nearby MIT colleagues, Boeing and MIT researchers will be able to strengthen their collaborative ties to further chart the course of the aerospace industry.”

Tufts SEC Built for the Future

The Tufts Science and Engineering Complex (SEC) was constructed with future demand in mind. The building which opened this past fall (2017) added more than 47,000 square-feet of laboratories, classrooms, and support rooms to Tufts’s science and engineering facilities, according to the university, which said the flexible design allows for the addition of more space to meet future demand.

Tufts University believes that the new center will create an atmosphere of innovation, collaboration, and discovery campus, especially with the continual life sciences boom in the area.

The 175,000-square-foot facility on College Avenue includes a new 80,000-square-foot building and the existing Robinson and Anderson halls. The project added more than 47,000 square feet of laboratories, classrooms, and support rooms to Tufts’s science and engineering facilities, according to the university.

The project was completed 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.

Utility Work Continues at Goldman School of Dental Medicine

Utility work on Albany Street, from the GSDM building to 650 Albany Street, will continue on Saturday and Sunday in line with City of Boston permits. On Saturday, flooring in the GSDM building will be replaced in the area around room 704F. The flooring work is associated with the previously completed work to add a door to room 704F.

The pile-drilling operation between GSDM and the Boston Medical Center/Newton Pavilion was completed last week. The pile-drilling will resume at the north elevation along the loading dock to Newton Pavilion in a few weeks. Installation of the earth-retention system (SOE) will continue between GSDM and Boston Medical Center/Newton Pavilion.  The equipment used to vibrate the SOE sheet pilings (required for installation) will be completing this operation as it heads toward East Newton Street. As a result of unanticipated work stoppages, this work will now continue through 7/3/18, pending weather and project scheduling requirements.

The project’s structural steel subcontractor will continue to install the clips for the existing GSDM exterior walls. (The clips are used to secure the steel framing to the building for the new entrance canopy.) Following this operation, installation of new entrance-canopy structural steel is scheduled to begin on Monday, 7/2/18.

Excavation of the soil between the sheet piling and the foundation of the former cafeteria will begin.  This is the first step towards removing the building’s existing foundations to allow the new addition support piles to be installed.  Saw-cutting at the existing GSDM foundation along Albany Street will take place in order to connect the new foundation system (for the future entrance canopy) to the existing building.Installation of new piping and duct work to support the school’s mechanical systems will continue in the basement and on the first floor.

A New Era in Kendall Square

via MIT News

As construction continues, the MIT Kendall Square Initiative project is expected to offer significant benefits for Cambridge, for MIT, and for the region. 

It will bring new housing units to one of the most sought-after parts of the city, as well as major new research and development facilities to what is already, as The Boston Globe recently described the Kendall area, “the beating heart of biotech. And if Kendall is the beating heart, then MIT must be the aorta. …” 

The new facilities will provide even greater opportunities for interaction and cross-fertilization between the biotech and other high-tech companies that have flocked to the area, and the students and faculty of MIT, whose presence helped draw those companies in the first place. 

The intermingling of these academic and commercial communities should further enhance the already abundant opportunity for partnerships, internships, collaborations, and serendipitous meetings.

The large development project 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.

Traffic Signal and Handicap Access Work


Continued infrastructural work on the relocation of the traffic signal at the corner of Albany Street and East Newton Street. (Weekend work, as directed by the City of Boston, reduces the impact on traffic.) Eversource will be on-site to provide power to the temporary signal. The existing signal will remain active until the temporary signal is operational.

installation of the handicap lift at the School’s East Newton Street entrance will continue. Testing and State inspection will follow over the next week before the lift is officially available for public use. This is an important milestone as it will allow the existing handicap ramp to be taken offline and demolished to clear the way for the new addition’s footprint.

A tent will be set up on the construction site in the space between the School and the Newton Pavilion, and other preparations will be made for the project’s Groundbreaking Ceremony to be held on April 5.


Investigation of the routing of the building’s existing utilities will continue, and utilities presently serving the former cafeteria will be disconnected to prepare for its demolition in the coming weeks.

Construction personnel will continue to be on site (inside and out) to prepare for the cafeteria demolition and the start of construction of Phase 1 in the School’s basement and first floor.

New lobby and “building within a building” coming to 50 Post Office Square


50 Post Office Square, a historic 18-story, 782,304-square-foot Art Deco tower overlooking the eponymous landmark park, is receiving a new lobby, part of a new “building within a building” featuring amenities desirable to 21st century tenants. The lobby will have the address of 110 High Street, and will be exclusive to tenants of the new 200,000-square-foot “building within a building”, which will be located across 50 Post Office Square’s first six floors. The lobby will feature a high ceiling enclosed by a 35-foot-tall glass curtain wall, as well as an indoor-outdoor LED screen. Atop the lobby will be an outdoor roof deck also exclusive to “building within a building” tenants.


50 Post Office Square is the latest existing Boston office building to receive a “building within a building” across lower floors, a growing strategy to bring new life to older assets. Boston Properties recently introduced a boutique “building within a building” across the first six levels of the 62-story 200 Clarendon Street tower in the Back Bay, formerly known as the John Hancock Tower, with the address of 120 St. James Avenue. Boston Properties’ “building within a building” is designed to appeal to technology tenants with younger workers, many of whom prefer a more direct, visual connection to cities’ streetscapes well served by space closer to ground level.


Installation of the glass curtain wall of the 110 High Street lobby is nearly complete, and fit out of the lobby’s interior and roof deck will soon begin. Completion of the lobby is expected this Summer. The following are photographs of the 110 High Street lobby:

Roche Brothers supermarket coming to $1.2 billion MIT Kendall Square Initiative development


Leading local grocer Roche Brothers will open a 19,000-square-foot Brothers Marketplace grocery store at One Broadway in Kendall Square, part of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)'s multi-phased $1.2 billion Kendall Square Initiative mixed-use development. The grocery store is expected to open in summer 2019 and will share One Broadway's repositioned ground floor with a restaurant and a new home for Dunkin Donuts. One Broadway's repositioning is part of the 1.8-million-square-foot MIT Kendall Square Initiative development, which will construct six new buildings in Kendall Square including approximately 888,000 square feet of office space, 115,000 square feet of retail, 450 graduate student housing units, 290 housing units and over 1.8 acres of open space.


A grocery store has reportedly been the most requested retail use for the development by neighborhood residents, local employees, and students. “The community’s desire for a grocery store was raised in every conversation that we had with stakeholders during our zoning process,” says Steve Marsh, Managing Director of MIT’s Real Estate Group, in a prepared statement. “It is so important to those who live and work in Kendall that we worked to incorporate it in the earliest possible phase of our development. Going forward, we believe that the market will also serve as an anchor for other retail that contributes to a vibrant neighborhood and greater sense of place in the square.”

MIT breaks ground on 28-story Kendall Square tower featuring 450 graduate student housing units


MIT broke ground last week on a new 28-story tower in Kendall Square, which upon completion will become Cambridge’s tallest tower, that will contain 450 graduate student housing units. At 28 stories and 319 feet tall, the tower will surpass MIT’s 295-foot-tall Green Building, Cambridge’s current tallest building. MIT received zoning approval last week to construct buildings up to 500 feet tall at the Volpe Center site in Kendall Square. 


The 28-story graduate student housing tower is the first building of MIT’s $1.2 billion, 1.7-million-square-foot Kendall Square Initiative development to start construction. Completion of the tower, located at 290-292 Main Street adjacent to the Kendall/MIT MBTA Red Line station, is expected in 2020. The building will also contain maker space, retail, an innovation and entrepreneurship hub and space for MIT’s Admissions Office.


The tower will provide MIT with crucial graduate student housing space, benefitting the university and its’ students as well as the Cambridge community at large. “Placing more graduate students in campus housing relieves pressure on the housing market in Cambridge. That’s good for everyone,” said Cambridge Mayor E. Denise Simmons in a prepared statement.


As part of the approval of MIT’s zoning for the Volpe Center site, MIT has committed to construct 950 new graduate student housing units, including the tower, which will allow the Institute to house more than 50 percent of its current graduate student population on campus. MIT is currently formulating plans to construct a second building with at least 500 units in the coming years, and intends to apply for a discretionary or building permit no later than the end of 2020, MIT will also work to add or apply for a discretionary, alteration or building permit to convert existing campus buildings into 200 additional graduate student housing units before the end of 2020.

New Harvard science and engineering building will contain state-of-the-art maker space


Harvard University’s upcoming $1 billion, 535,000-square-foot Science and Engineering Complex will feature a 5,000-square-foot state-of-the-art Maker Space workshop, providing the Harvard community with a new node to test ideas and incubate enterprises. The space will feature high-end manufacturing and assembly workstations available to Harvard community members of all skill levels, and will be designed to encourage interaction among its’ users. The Maker Space marks Harvard’s latest addition to Allston’s rapidly-developing Western Avenue innovation corridor, following the Pagliuca Harvard Life Lab’s opening last Fall. “Allston has become a hub for innovators and entrepreneurs from across the University, and the new Maker Space will provide yet another outlet for the skill and imagination of the Harvard community,” said Harvard President Drew Faust. “We look forward to seeing the ideas of engineers, designers, artists, and so many other creators realized in the heart of our expanding campus.” “From the day those doors open, the Maker Space facilities will be a catalyst for discoveries and inventions we cannot even imagine today, said Frank Doyle, the John A. Paulson Dean of Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.


The Cihang Foundation, a philanthropic organization founded by tourism, logistics, and financial services mogul HNA Group in 2010 to broaden the company’s commitment to society and social responsibility, is providing support for the new Maker Space. Adam Tan, CEO of HNA Group, sees the Maker Space as a catalyst for creativity. “Incubation space plays a vital role in bringing enterprises to market,” Tan said. “Harvard is already a global leader in research and discovery, and the Maker Space will empower their talented community of students, faculty, and researchers to propel inventions and innovations for the benefit of all. With its gift to the Maker Space, the Cihang Foundation furthers its mission to give back and echoes HNA Group’s core values of innovation, integrity, and excellence in performance.” Construction of the new Science and Engineering Complex’s vertical steel frame is now underway following completion of the building’s foundation. The Science and Engineering Complex will open in Fall 2020. The following is a photograph of the Science and Engineering Complex construction site, courtesy Harvard:

Anonymous investor acquires 45% stake in Vertex Pharmaceuticals’ Seaport District campus for $261 million


An anonymous financial investor has paid $261 million to acquire a 45% equity stake in Vertex Pharmaceuticals’ 1.1 million square foot, two-building Seaport District global headquarters campus. Senior Housing Properties Trust (SNH), who acquired the campus for $1.1 billion in May 2014, retains a 55% majority stake in the campus and will continue to manage the property. The anonymous investor’s $261 million investment is based on the campus’ present valuation of $1.2 billion, with under $620 million of existing secured debt on the property.


SNH closed last July on a new 10-year, $620 million mortgage on the campus provided by Morgan Stanley and Citi Bank with a fixed interest rate of 3.53%; the loan will mature in August 2026. “This transaction highlights the increased value of these two well-located, well-leased buildings since we acquired them less than three years ago,” said SNH President & COO David Hegarty in a statement. “This transaction also reduces our investment portfolio’s concentration in this property and reduces our overall leverage.”

Featuring six new buildings totaling nearly 1.7 million square feet and pegged at $1.2 billion, MIT’s Kendall Square Initiative development is transforming Kendall Square with a pedestrian streetscape, state-of-the-art office space and an increased residential presence. Formerly dormant blocks and surface parking lots will be revitalized with new retail and public spaces topped off with offices and residences that will activate the area 24/7. The development’s SoMa (South of Main Street) phase began construction last fall, and the NoMa (North of Main Street) phase is moving through design review.

A map showing the Kendall Square Initiative buildings within the neighborhood


Updated plans for the NoMa phase were recently revealed. NoMa will construct Building One, a 290 to 300-unit apartment building, as well as 33,915 square feet of new retail and 15,995 square feet of new office space strategically positioned along Broadway and Broad Canal Way. As part of NoMa, the existing One Broadway office building will be improved with additional office and retail space as well as facade renovations and a new office tenant outdoor terrace. Building One will be located adjacent to the existing One Broadway building, replacing an existing surface parking lot, and will provide additional retail frontage along both streets. Building One will be 24 stories tall and will contain approximately 384,050 square feet. At least 53 apartments at Building One will be affordable under Cambridge’s inclusionary zoning ordinance.

Building One will replace the existing 144-space surface parking lot with 150 garage parking spaces and over 350 bicycle storage spaces. The development team hopes to activate the Broadway frontage with a grocery store; the new retail along Broad Canal Way will complement the existing ground-floor retail along that street located in the Watermark Kendall development.

The SoMa phase, Buildings Two through Six, will build five new buildings while preserving three historic buildings on Main Street. Building Two will feature 300,000 square feet of office space and 18,000 square feet of retail at the corner of Main Street and Wadsworth Street. Building Two will replace MIT’s existing Eastgate graduate student housing building.

Building Five will feature 360,000 square feet of office space, 20,000 square feet of retail and a new 65,000 square foot home for the MIT Museum. Building Five will replace the existing Kendall Square Lot and a one-story commercial building. Lastly, Building Six will be a two-story commercial building with 6,600 square feet of retail space.

About 1,400 parking spaces will be built as part of SoMa, and two new Hubway stations are planned for the full development. A new head house for the Kendall Square MBTA Red Line station may be built. Other pedestrian-oriented improvements are in the works, such as raised crosswalks on Wadsworth Street, multiple new green spaces and the closure of Hayward Street to through traffic, creating a new retail and public space-lined pedestrian mall. The development of retail along the south side of Main Street and side streets will contribute to pedestrian use and make the MIT campus more connected to Kendall Square’s multiple public transit options.
