Global investor, asset manager and developer Oxford Properties Group has secured a total of 113,000 square feet of new life science leases at 645 Summer Street, a lab and innovation building at Pappas Way in Boston. The property is now fully leased.
Lease transactions include a renewal and expansion for a 75,000-square-foot, 10-year lease with Akouos, a genetic medicine company as well as a 21,000-square-foot, five-year lease with Ikena Oncology, a biotech company. Additionally, Oxford secured a 17,000-square-foot, five-year lease with Monte Rosa Therapeutics, a biotech company developing cancer therapeutics that modulate protein degradation pathways.
