Callahan Construction Commences Work on Waltham Lab
Callahan Construction Managers has begun work on 300 3rd Ave, a new Life Sciences development located in Waltham. The project will feature four stories of flexible and customizable office and laboratory space with 5 levels of parking, two above grade and 3 below as well as a mechanical penthouse. The building is designed by DiMella Shaffer and owned and developed by Lincoln Property Company.
The 139,000 square foot building, 30,000 sf per floor, will feature a poured concrete foundation with a steel frame concrete deck. Facing the Route 128 corridor, an expansive glass curtain wall wraps the façade bringing light and views into the spaces. Metal panels and punched windows wrap the spaces with views to a dramatic natural rock face on the property. The lobby will include a glass entrance with natural wood ceiling and wall and custom lighting.
“We’re proud to be part of the continued growth in this market and pleased to partner with Lincoln Property Company and Callahan Construction to deliver a LEED Gold Core & Shell space that is flexible, resilient, and adaptable with an eye towards the future,” said Alison Nash, Associate, Sustainability Practice Leader at DiMella Shaffer.
The project commenced on June 4, 2020 with abatement of the existing building and cutting and isolating of existing utilities. Callahan demolished the existing 2-story building in late July. Callahan has been performing site work since August and will continue to the end of December including, clearing, site demolition, rock blasting, rock stabilization, and excavation for new foundations. Foundations are scheduled to begin in January of 2021.
“We are very excited to once again be partnering with Lincoln Properties on what we believe will be an extremely successful suburban Lab project given the state of the local life sciences market and the associated demand for high quality lab space.” stated Steve Callahan, Vice President, Business Development at Callahan.”
The property will include an on-site shuttle that will transport tenants to and from the MBTA station located in Waltham center and is expected for completion in January 2022.
