We were asked to determine the feasibility of developing a nine acre parcel in Cambridge, MA, while maximizing the income from existing income-producing properties. We worked with the client, consultants, and public officials to determine the optimum use for the property, to assess the likelihood of receiving permits from local and state regulatory agencies, and to develop a site plan demonstrating the viability of developing the property at the maximum square footage.


With the client, we selected a development team which included lab, marketing, hazardous waste, permit, and traffic engineering consultants. With this team, we developed a preliminary master plan and building plans for the development of a 550,000 SF technology center that could accommodate the users' specific mechanical, structural, expansion, and financing requirements.
