Construction Continues of Lab Redevelopment in Cambridge
Construction is ongoing for the redevelopment of two former office buildings at 730-750 Main Street in Cambridge. The work will convert the space to a commercial lab building with ground-floor retail space. The existing buildings are receiving a full façade restoration, new M/E/Ps, and a new rooftop mechanical penthouse. The core/shell will be fit-out to accommodate the MIT-powered venture firm, The Engine, which provides incubator space for start-ups pioneering technology in the biotech, medical device, manufacturing, clean energy, robotics and software industries. The interior will feature three major program areas—biology and chemistry labs, office and administration areas and flexible makerspace with a machine shop, electronics and rapid prototyping capabilities.
