Boston, May 9, 2017 – Just months after owner/occupier, Eversource (formerly NSTAR), introduced new multi-tenant friendly improvements to its Westwood headquarters at 247 Station Drive, Colliers has announced that local healthcare giant, Beth Israel Physician’s Organization, an affiliate of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), has kicked off about one-quarter of the available leasing at the building in a 21,000-square-foot deal. Senior vice president Bill Lynch and executive vice president Kristin Blount represented BIDMC in the transaction, as they have in about 15 leases in recent years. This most recent Westwood transaction will relocate BIDMC from One University Avenue located about a half mile down the street.
Colliers representatives for Eversource, co-chairman Tom Hynes, president James Elcock, senior vice president David Goodhue, and vice president John Hines, have been able to successfully market the property as the Summit at Station Drive, showcasing its newly renovated cafeteria, fitness center, lobbies, and additional common areas that have truly made the building a multi-tenanted complex where you can 'take your business to new heights'. "Station Drive has become a highly desirable address, especially with the success of and attraction to University Station," noted Goodhue. "Beth Israel was drawn to everything the Summit had to offer and we believe their presence in the building will be accretive to the overall leasing campaign."
Summit at Station Drive offers strong ownership, on-site professional security, covered parking, unparalleled visibility and accessibility, and amenity-rich surroundings with its location atop the desirable University Station project, anchored by Target, Wegmans and Lifetime Fitness. Steps from the building tenants have immediate access to a wide variety of retail brands and dining options, as well as residential apartments. In addition, it is conveniently located just minutes from Route 128 (I-95) and directly adjacent to the 128 Commuter Rail/Amtrak Station and Acela, offering local and regional public transportation easily accessible via a building shuttle service.
