As part of an overall effort to revitalize the MIT Tech Square area, Biomed Realty Trust commissioned Arrowstreet to renovate the existing building at 325 Vassar Street into lab and office space with the goal of attracting life science and other high-tech tenants. A key part of the process was the design of a universal flex lab template for lab, office, and support space which can be quickly and easily customized to suit any technical discipline. Arrowstreet designed custom layouts for the first tenant, Epizyme, which was able to occupy the space and become fully operational just four months after signing a letter of intent.
