Jamestown, a real estate and investment firm with a headquarters office in Atlanta, said it has bought the Riverview office building and Cambridge Science Center in the Kendall Square neighborhood of Cambridge.
Jamestown confirmed the purchase price of $192.6 million. The seller was Equity Offfice.
The Riverview is made up of two buildings connected by an atrium --- 245 First St., a 10-story office building above an eight-story garage with 334 parking spaces, and Cambridge Science Center, a six-story life-science facility.
“Jamestown continues to focus on the needs of today’s evolving workforce from the tech and bio tech experts in Kendall Square to the drivers of the innovation economy in the Innovation District of the Boston Seaport,” Michael Phillips, Jamestown’s chief operating officer, said in a statement. “At Riverview, we are looking forward to activating the ground floor common areas of this asset by adding in demand amenities and improving shared spaces that will encourage the cross-pollination of ideas within the community.”
Jamestown said it has been actively acquiring properties in the Greater Boston area over the last three years, most recently the Innovation and Design Building in the Seaport/Marine Industrial Park and the Newbury Collection in the Back Bay.
