BXP recently completed a 113,000-rsf innovation hub in Waltham, Mass. Designed by TRIA, 103 CityPoint aims to reshape corporate culture for science and technology tenants, energizing its workforce and accelerating growth. The flexible flour-story structure provides 80 percent laboratory and office space, with 20 percent accommodating a double-height cGMP manufacturing area spanning approximately 25,000 sf. Column-free floor plates, 50-foot-clear structural spans, and 16-foot floor-to-floor heights can address a wide range of tenant requirements, complemented by an inviting lobby and café.

Located in the Route 128 life sciences corridor, the biophilic development is illuminated by captivating exterior and interior lighting that was designed by Sladen Feinstein Integrated Lighting. The project team included Simpson Gumpertz & Heger as structural engineer, VHB as civil engineer, Acentech as acoustic & audiovisual engineer, and R.W. Sullivan as telecom, data & security engineer. Arcadis provided MEP+FP engineering services and landscape design. Code Red Consutants acted as code consultant and enviEnergy Studio performed energy modeling and LEED services. Additional consultants included VDA (vertical transportation), St. Onge Company (loading and logistics) and Colburn Guyette (food service design). Commodore Builders broke ground in June of 2022 on the sustainably designed facility, which has achieved LEED Silver certification.
