Related Beal’s Fort Point plans include lots of lab space
One of the animating trends in Boston-area real estate right now—and for the foreseeable future—is the development and marketing of lab and office space for life sciences firms. Such space is underpinning new developments and redevelopments of existing property throughout Boston proper and in Somerville, Watertown, and other surrounding communities. It’s simple demand: The life sciences/biotechnology industry is one of the biggest and most lucrative in the Boston region—and it’s growing.
