Brookwood Welcomes Magellan Diagnostics, Inc. To Brookwood Business Center

Richards Barry Joyce & Partners Represents An Affiliate Of Brookwood Financial Partners In 22,900 SF Lease In One Of Market’s Most Active Parks

BOSTON – May 10, 2012 – Richards Barry Joyce & Partners, LLC (RBJ&P), a full-service commercial real estate advisory firm, announced today that it represented an affiliate of Brookwood Financial Partners, LLC in a 22,900 square foot lease with Magellan Diagnostics, Inc. in the Brookwood Business Center (Billerica, Mass.).

Magellan Diagnostics will relocate to Brookwood Business Center from Chelmsford.  The Magellan Diagnostics lease follows close on the heels of 110,000 square feet of leases signed at the park with Potpourri Group, Inc. and DGI-Invisuals, LLC, which were announced in March 2012.

Brookwood Business Center consists of six buildings, totaling 448,616 square feet of office and flex space.  Brookwood recently completed significant renovations to the park, including updates to building infrastructure and landscaping.  Additionally, planning is underway for a cafeteria that will serve all tenants in the park.  Purchased by Brookwood at the end of 2010, the park is located at 101 Billerica Avenue in Billerica and Tewksbury, Massachusetts.

“We are seeing a tremendous amount of activity in Brookwood Business Center, far exceeding that of the surrounding market,” said Amy Grey, Brookwood’s asset manager for the park.  “This is due not only to the park’s location and quality of construction, but also to the significant renovations made during Brookwood’s ownership, including an investment into tenant amenities. We are pleased to welcome Magellan Diagnostics to our growing list of tenants.”

The Richards Barry Joyce & Partners team of Brian McKenzie, John Wilson, James Lipscomb and Emma Geldmacher represented Brookwood in the transaction.  The firm is the exclusive leasing agent for the park.  Magellan Diagnostics, a medical device company that develops point-of-care systems, clinical laboratory instruments, and analytical laboratory services focused on lead testing, was represented by Anne Columbia and Patrick Downey of the Columbia Group Realty Advisors, Inc.
