“Reaching the steel topping of milestone on our second life sciences building at Boynton Yards marks a significant achievement as we approach the midway point on construction,” said Kevin Sullivan, Executive Vice President of Shawmut Design and Construction’s New England Region. “With the completion of 808 Windsor next year, Boynton Yards will continue expanding upon its leading-edge offerings and take another step in creating Somerville’s emerging innovation and cultural hub.”
Set to be completed in early 2024, the 370,000-square-foot, purpose-built building will span 11 floors and offer R&D lab/office space and ground floor retail. Amenities will include four levels of below-grade parking, a mobility/bike room, as well as community-based and activated green space. With an energy-efficient and sustainable design, the building will achieve LEED Platinum certification.
Designed by Architectural Resources Cambridge with construction management led by Shawmut Design and Construction, 808 Windsor Street, the second of four master planned life sciences buildings at Boynton Yards, will feature 35,000-square-foot, column-free floor plates offering tenants flexibility to grow and redesign to meet the needs of their workforce.
The future of the seven-acre Boynton Yards community includes commercial, residential, retail, public green, arts, and performance spaces that will transform the area into a work-live-play neighborhood. The topping off milestone at 808 Windsor Street comes on the heels of 101 South Street, the first completed building at Boynton Yards which opened in May 2022 and is home to four Flagship Pioneering-founded companies.
