The Challenge

Cushman & Wakefield was engaged by GMCR to assist with the creation of a new Corporate Headquarters and R&D facility in Burlington, MA.


The Solution

The 17-year, three-phase LEED-certified, build-to-suit lease for a total of 590,000 square feet is the largest suburban build-to-suit lease development on record in New England. GMCR’s goal was to combine its three existing locations into a single campus setting.Being a leader in product innovation and technology, GMCR required a location allowing them to continue to attract and retain the best employees in Greater Boston, along with highway access and a rich environment of neighboring amenities.


The Result

 Working closely with Cushman & Wakefield's Capital Markets and CIS Investor Services, our account team was able to help GMCR identify the right location, negotiate aggressive lease terms and rent, and assist the leadership team with the market and industry intelligence to validate the selected real estate solution.
