Harrison Street Acquires Cambridge’s Osborn Triangle

Chicago-based Harrison Street acquired Osborn Triangle in Cambridge, MA from a subsidiary of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology reportedly for $1.1 billion. The state-of-the-art, multi-tenant office and laboratory complex is located in East Cambridge/Kendall Square near some of the world’s top educational and research institutions.

Harrison Street partnered with Boston-based Bulfinch Companies, Inc., and a subsidiary of MIT, which retained a partial interest in the property. MIT will retain long-term ownership of the land.

Osborn Triangle is directly adjacent to MIT’s campus and encompasses three buildings – 610 Main St. North, 1 Portland St. and 700 Main St. – with 676,917 square feet and an associated 650-space parking garage. Each building has been either recently renovated or built. The complex is fully-leased to seven tenants and includes three anchor tenants: Pfizer, Inc., Novartis International AG, and LabCentral.

NKF’s Edward Maher, Matthew Pullen, James Tribble and Samantha Hallowell oversaw the recapitalization deal, in conjunction with NKF’s Mark Winters and David Townsend.
