Interior Work Nearing Completion on The BEAT in Dorchester
A certificate of occupancy has been issued to The BEAT at 135 Morrissey Boulevard pending work completion in November. A repositioning of the 16.6-acre former Boston Globe headquarters at 135 Morrissey Boulevard in Dorchester, the existing three-story office and industrial building will be retained and retrofitted into a 695,000-square-foot modern hub for creative office, laboratory and retail uses named The BEAT.
In June the Nordblom Company filed a permit to convert the planned 300,000 SF of light manufacturing space at The BEAT into lab space. The development will feature upgrades for lab tenants including mechanical chillers, exhaust fans, and a new freight elevator.
