MassEcon ReadyMass 100
Last week MassEcon released their 10th edition of the ReadyMass 100. Four new properties have made the cut this go-round including three industrial locations and one office property. The ReadyMass 100 initiative aims to inform growing companies both in and out of state that Massachusetts has ample supply of properties (land, office/lab, and industrial/flex warehouse space) ready to go. A team of real estate experts and the MassEcon team work to vet the properties based on a number of different criteria including, building condition, access to highways, and appropriate zoning codes.
The ReadyMass 100 has already resulted in over 50 success stories, representing about 7 million square feet. The most recent being Boeing’s lease at 314 Main Street in Cambridge
