Jones Lang LaSalle Construction Completes 115,000-Square-Foot Interior for PerkinElmer
 
Jones Lang LaSalle Construction announced July 9 it has completed the interior construction of 115,000 square feet of new headquarters space for PerkinElmer at 940 Winter Street in Waltham, Mass. Steven Wassersug, a senior vice president with Jones Lang LaSalle, served as project executive while senior manager Jamie Audette was the construction manager, and Kevin White and John Kirk were the superintendents on the project.
 
Following preconstruction work, the project was completed in just six months. The new Class A office, lab, and manufacturing space features an open floor plan for all common areas, new hard-walled offices, executive offices, a boardroom, multiple conference areas, a two-story dining area with skylight, two interior stair systems, and an employee fitness facility.
 
PerkinElmer is a longstanding client of Jones Lang LaSalle.
 
Jones Lang LaSalle’s Bill Bailey represented PerkinElmer on the lease transaction. The space was designed by architectural firm ADD. ADD’s principal in charge was Lisa Killaby, while John Feidelson and Jodi Lundin were project architects. RDK Engineers and Wallworks served as engineering consultants.
 

 
After $7M Sale, ‘Cosmetic’ Changes Planned for Newton, Mass., Office/R&D Building
 
Boston-based Fairlane Properties said it plans “numerous cosmetic changes,” including new signs, for an office/R&D building it recently purchased in Newton, Mass.
 
Fairlane spent just under $7 million to buy the 80,000-square-foot 59-83 Chapel St., also called Chapel Business Center, from ZA Nabi LLC. John Nealon of WJ Nealon Commercial Realty represented the seller and Warren Brown of Boston Commercial Properties represented the buyer in the purchase, financed through Eastern Bank.
 
Located adjacent to Chapel Bridge Park between Watertown and California Streets, Chapel Business Center has 35,000 square feet of available high-ceiling office space and another 20,000 square feet of R&D space. The 19th century-era building features brick-and-beam interiors and is zoned for manufacturing.
 
Fairlane is marketing the space exclusively through The Codman Company and four of its professionals — Drew Nelson, David Campbell, Brad Bevis, and Richard Robinson. They are promoting Chapel Business Center as one of Newton’s few available locations for tenant businesses needing R&D and manufacturing space.
 
“This property is a hidden gem that we would like to reintroduce to the brokerage and tenant communities,” said Michael Grill, president of Fairlane Properties and its entity formed to own the building, Fairlane Chapel LLC.
 
Fairlane Properties has retained Lincoln Property Company as property manager.
