51 Melcher St – Boston, MA

Alongside our partners, H+O is repositioning this 100+ yr old office building for life science.

This existing structure was an excellent candidate for life science repositioning:

  • Thick brick masonry exterior walls with steel and concrete structure within. The mass of the existing structure allowed us to add heavier roof top equipment to support lab use without triggering a seismic upgrade.
  • Floor vibration performance of the existing steel and concrete floors are suitable for the large majority of the life science market.
  • 100k+ GSF and large alley access to old freight elevator shaft

Not all buildings are created equal – schedule a meeting through our contact page to better spot risk and opportunity when acquiring existing assets.

Developer: Leggat McCall Properties
Architect: Studio Troika
Contractor: Wise Construction
