Bisnow: Boston Burbs Bonanza 2019

Wednesday, July 17, 2019 - 7:30am to 10:30am


The 128 Belt has long been the demarkation of suburban life. Major commercial office, retail and mixed-use projects have caught up to the level of traffic to the point of creating micro urban hot spots like the Burlington Mall development. But major companies like Corning Life Sciences and Raytheon have extended their reach out of the hub into the 495 corridor. As Boston's central hub continues to fill up with major companies relocating their headquarters into the city, the 128 corridor looks equally as enticing for companies looking to take advantage of cheaper rents and suburban lifestyle settings while avoiding transportation issues closer to the city. Some reports have described the 128 office market as restrained given lack of net absorption in 2018 but the strength of the life science and technology sectors continue to attract development along the suburban belt in multifamily, mixed-use, and hotel sectors. Find out how the suburbs are evolving in 2019 and answer all your questions at Bisnow's Boston Burbs Bonzanza.
