Avision Young Completes 14,700 Square Foot Lease at Strawberry Hill in Acton
Geosyntec, a specialized consulting and engineering firm, has signed an office lease for 14,700 square feet (sf) with landlord Campanelli at Strawberry Hill Corporate Center located at 289 Great Road in Acton, MA. Located on the first floor of the building since 2004, Geosyntec will relocate to a larger space on the building’s second floor to accommodate growth.
Avison Young Principal Jack Kerrigan, Bill Sullivan and Anne Flanagan, a Vice-President and Senior Account Manager, respectively, in the Boston office, represent the landlord and work closely with Danielle Simbliaris, Leasing & Marketing Manager at Campanelli, to market the available office space. Avison Young Principal Steve Cook represented Geosyntec in the transaction.
“The location works well for our business and our employees. The commitment ownership has made to the building, including the improvements made in recent months, solidified our decision to stay,” comments Doug Larson, a principal engineer of Geosyntec. “Campanelli worked with us to relocate to space better suited for our operations and allowed us to sign a new long-term lease with confidence.”
Campanelli purchased Strawberry Hill Corporate Center in February 2014 and has implemented a significant capital-improvement program which comprises a fully renovated and modernized front entrance, repaved parking lot, upgraded landscaping and exterior lighting, and a new energy-management system. New onsite amenities include a modern fitness center, upgraded common spaces and LeanBox vending area, and the addition of a4,000-sf collaborative work space, WorkPlace, which offers 11 private, furnished offices for lease.
“Since taking ownership of the property last year, Campanelli has had tremendous success attracting and retaining tenants,” notes Kerrigan. “This success is attributed not only to the quality of the building and its location, but to Campanelli’s commitment to excellence as an owner and operator.”
Located on Route 2A, Strawberry Hill is conveniently situated near major highways including Routes 2, 495 and 128. With 1,000 sf to 42,000 sf available for lease, the four-story building is attractively landscaped, highly visible to Great Road, and provides an excellent parking ratio (3.6 per 1,000 sf). The property features a brick exterior and ribbon window facade with a dramatic sloped glass atrium. Current building tenants include Harsip & Stuart, Inc., Automotive Networks Corporation, and Westchester Management. Nearby amenities include Citizens Bank, Dunkin Donuts and the Acton Shopping Plaza, which contains Roche Bros., TJ Maxx, T.C. Lando’s and Not Your Average Joe’s.
