Colliers Boston brings to market 7.8-acre Brookline development opportunity

Boston, MA, February 21, 2019 – Colliers International Boston has recently brought to market a unique 7.8-acre redevelopment opportunity in Brookline, Massachusetts, widely recognized as one of the most highly desirable markets surrounding the City of Boston. The site, branded The Common at Fisher Hill, has been home to Newbury College for almost half a century and comprises over 142,000 SF of existing structures across the seven-parcel, nearly 7.8-acre campus. Located along Fisher Avenue, Holland Road and Hyslop Road, The Common at Fisher Hill is currently improved with a combination of academic and office buildings, residence halls with 183 beds, and other student-oriented campus amenities.

Colliers International’s multi-disciplinary team of Senior Vice President Christopher Sower and the Multi-Family Advisory Group, Vice Chair James Elcock, Co-Chair Tom Hynes and Senior Vice President Bob Cronin will lead a competitive sales process to identify qualified buyers interested in pursuing the multitude of redevelopment options ranging from continued and enhanced educational use to ultra-high-end residential development.

“We look forward to working with the college in finding an aligned buyer who will honor the school’s legacy and preserve the integrity of the existing neighborhood,” noted Sower. “A site of this scale in Brookline is very rare,” added Elcock. “It has built-in allure and really offers the full package – urban accessibility with a neighborhood feel; a top-of-the-line, plentiful amenity base; excellent demographics; and more.”
