Center for Life Science|Boston is almost fully leased
With Kowa Company Ltd. of Japan just agreeing to occupy about 24,000 square feet of space and with Children's Hospital Boston announcing a recent lease expansion, the Center for Life Science|Boston is 91 percent leased, said the owner, BioMed Realty Trust Inc., a real estate investment trust headquartered in San Diego.
Kowa has a pharmaceutical division, BioMed Realty noted in a press release.
According to a Globe story in 2006, BioMed Realty agreed to buy the 18-story center from developer Lyme Properties and the Scottish Widows Investment Partnership.
The center's first tenants moved in during the second quarter of last year, a BioMed Realty spokesman said.
The building has received gold status pre-certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, from the US Green Building Council, BioMed Realty said.
