Boston Construction News: Experts: Greater Boston Development Boom Will Survive Pandemic

Reprinted from South Coast Today

Commercial real estate and development experts said they are confident that the pandemic won’t spell the end of the development boom in and around Boston, but they said they are keeping their eyes on consumer and workforce trends that might reshape their industry.

During a virtual panel convened by NAOIP Massachusetts, the development pros said that while the COVID-19 pandemic slowed construction timelines and injected generous doses of uncertainty into the equation, development still has plenty of track in front of it in the Boston region.

“We operate between Boston and Washington, D.C., and I think that Boston is clearly the strongest market of those three and maybe the strongest market in the country,” Shawn Hurley, president of Marcus Partners said, referring to the Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C., markets. “It certainly seems that development in this market remains really strong and that our economy is more diversified than ever before. So we feel very good about the Boston market and how we’re positioned today, albeit in a very volatile world and as we enter what appears to be a potentially very volatile fall.”

Lauren O’Neil, senior managing director at JLL Capital Markets, said she doesn’t foresee a persistent slowdown in development in the Boston area. After desirable long-term investment-grade tenant leases, she said development appears to be second on the investment strategy depth chart.

“I think the thesis is that we may be in a bit of a slowdown now, but in two to three years when a project is set to deliver it sets up nicely for the rebound in this current slowdown, I won’t go as far as to call it a recession. And so we’ve seen investors and debt capital alike gravitating towards new developments,” O’Neil said. “And in fact, it’s probably easier right now to capitalize on new ground-up development than it is a value-add office deal, for example, where you might have 70 percent occupancy and you’re trying to get to 90 percent occupancy in the near term. There’s just more conviction on what the world will look like in a couple years versus over the next six months.”

O’Neil said hotels and retail developments are struggling to get financed right now. Retail developments with a grocer and that have “a compelling story” might fare better, she said.

“But with the delinquency rate on existing loans in the mid-teens for those product types, it’s going to be a bit of a challenge to get those C-Suites on board with making any sort of aggressive bets on retail and hotel for the foreseeable future,” she said.

Chris Brown, CEO of construction management firm John Moriarty & Associates, said biotech remains one of the hottest sectors in the marketplace right now and the “great need” for added research and lab space has not been diminished by the pandemic. At the same time, there’s “a little hesitancy” to commit to any deals involving traditional office space, given the uncertainties around the future of remote working and the return of most employees to the office.

“Biotech is probably the sector of the market that … will have the most traction moving forward,” he said.

Tamara Small, the CEO of NAIOP Massachusetts who moderated Tuesday’s discussion, asked Brown about converting office space to research or lab space, citing conversations she’s had with people who have suggested that “biotech is the new office.” Brown said his firm is working to “reposition” some office space at the Cambridgeside Galleria and has “a few other projects in the pipeline that look to take existing office space and potentially either add on to it or reposition it for biotech and lab space.”

“That seems to be one of the hottest sectors for us and the most interesting questions we get is in regards to that type of product as well,” he said.

O’Neil said converting office spaces to research or lab space for life sciences and biotech companies could help meet some of the demand for those spaces sooner than the pipeline of new construction could on its own.

“The demand from the tenants on the life science side was growing at an annual growth rate of a little over 8 percent and it’s projected to continue through 2023 at just over 7 percent, which if you look at the current 25.7 million square foot market, that means there’s demand for over 34 million square feet,” she said. “We’re about 3 million short of meeting that demand based on the current pipeline for 2023. Now, that generally includes only ground-up, brand new developments, so maybe the conversion factor will start to fill in some of that.”

The panel also took on the suburbs and the question of whether the pandemic, and the changes it has brought to commutes and daily life, is creating a time for the suburbs to shine and draw even more people out of urban cores. In July, real estate market analysts at the Warren Group said increases in sales in more rural parts of Massachusetts were “far in excess” of the state average.

“Cities are going to endure. The intrinsic qualities that brought everybody to them pre-COVID, we’re going to appreciate them all the more when this ends, and it will end. So we just envision a totally different kind of lifestyle returning when we’re through this,” Abe Menzin, a principal at the development firm Samuels & Associates, said. “In my more optimistic moments, I actually think that remote work options for people could actually enhance the vitality of cities. It could help shave the peaks off of some of the congestion issues that we’ve encountered, and could give people more flexibility in their lifestyle and make a livable city like Boston even more liveable.”

Kirk Sykes, a managing partner at Accordia Partners, is banking on people continuing to want to live in Boston but said aspects of two of his most significant projects aim to address concerns that the pandemic has highlighted. Sykes is involved in the plan to redevelop the site of the Boston State Hospital into a development with more than 360 housing units near Franklin Park and Mass. Audubon’s Boston Nature Center and Wildlife Sanctuary in Mattapan. He’s also part of the plan to convert the old Bayside Expo site in Dorchester into more than 1,000 units of housing, retail space, office space and more.

“We feel extremely blessed to have a 65-acre park, and the beach and the ocean in front of Bayside. And as such, I think those characteristics will play heavily into corporate relocations for campuses or even the decision to get on the train and go for five minutes to Kendall [Square] as opposed to being in Kendall,” he said. “So we’re designing in the desire to be in an environment that gives you the air, the light, the breath, the view that you might get in the suburbs, but getting it in a 20-minute bike ride, 30-minute walk or five-minute Uber/Lyft to the Financial District.”

Boston Construction News: Winthrop Center Secures $775,000,000 Construction Loan to Advance Boston's Most Environmentally Conscious Design and Healthiest Office Space

BOSTON, Oct. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Millennium Partners Boston, a local arm of the internationally recognized developer Millennium Partners, is proud to announce it has secured a $775 million construction loan from real estate investment and finance firm Cale Street Investments for Winthrop Center, the 691-foot, $1.30 billion-dollar development coming to the heart of Boston. Steps ahead of others racing to integrate health and wellness features into buildings in response to COVID-19, Winthrop Center has prioritized elevated indoor air quality since its initial inception and approval in 2018 and will be built to deliver fresh air on every office floor. Setting the new global standard for integrating health and wellness, sustainability, and technology in building design, Winthrop Center will deliver 812,000-square-feet of Global Class A office space, 572,000-square-feet of residential space, including 321 luxury residences, and Boston’s next great public space upon completion.

Designed by Handel Architects to address not just environmental and sustainability concerns but also the health and productivity of its occupants, Winthrop Center addresses the growing sense of responsibility people have to reduce their carbon footprint, while offering better managed air and other health benefits of Passive House design. The building will achieve LEED Gold certification for its residential portion, LEED Platinum certification and WELL Gold certification, the leading tool for advancing health and well-being in buildings globally for its office space, and become the world’s largest and most advanced Passive House office building.

“Securing the construction loan from Cale Street Investments – an unprecedented investment given the global pandemic – assures that Winthrop Center will remain on schedule for completion in 2022, when it will introduce a new model for office environments and surpass current best-in-class standards,” said Millennium Partners Founder Christopher M. Jeffries. “From its inception, human-centric design, sustainability, and flexible workspaces have formed the foundation of Winthrop Center, and with innovation a core part of Boston’s DNA, the City is the perfect home for this legacy building.”

Fueled by academic research from Boston’s great minds, Winthrop Center redefines how cutting-edge urban research, architecture, technology, sustainability and engineering can shape a building and impact the productivity, wellness and social engagement of the people inside it. Through a partnership with MIT professors led by the Director of MIT’s Environmental Solutions Initiative, John Fernandez, the project is well-positioned to meet increased demands for healthier indoor environments, flexibility and comfort, and energy efficiency. Winthrop Center is also poised to leave a lasting legacy, not by its ornamentation or surface detailing, but by the air quality it improves, the energy consumption it reduces, and the social and environmental improvements it issues beyond its property line.

“We are proud to partner with Millennium Partners Boston in support of the development of Winthrop Center,” said Cale Street’s Founder Ed Siskind. “For over 25 years, Millennium Partners has had a proven track record for delivering luxury mixed use properties. We believe Winthrop Center will be a market leader in sustainability as the largest Passive House office building in the world.”

Forward-thinking health and wellness aspects were integral to Winthrop Center’s vision and design prior to the onset of COVID-19, which has heightened concerns related to indoor air quality and ventilation. In addition to providing 30–50 percent more fresh air than comparable buildings, Winthrop Center was designed to provide greater access to natural light, a column-free structural design with unobstructed sight lines, and generous 12-foot ceilings that help tenants achieve clarity of thinking and increased productivity. Winthrop Center’s Passive House building envelope with triple paned windows and healthy material selection works behind the scenes to keep occupants well and healthy, and the design affords opportunities to connect, collaborate, and be inspired, with the Connector, a public-facing gathering space on the ground floor, serving as the living heart of the building.

In addition to delivering a next-gen office space that reflects the utmost in environmental stewardship, sustainability, technology and wellness standards, the vibrant mixed-use tower offers prospective residents the opportunity to live in a legacy building reflecting socially and environmentally conscious values. Winthrop Center residences are designed for an urban Boston lifestyle, with next-gen smart home technology, access to building amenities including world-class mind, body and nutrition services; a residential Club featuring a full-service lounge and function room; an immersive social calendar to connect residents with curated Boston experiences across food, travel, art and culture; and five-star service at all touch points, from valet, door man to concierge and beyond.

Winthrop Center marks another transformational project for Millennium Partners, which is renowned for offerings that in addition to delivering world-class design, architecture, services and amenities, also positively impact communities and create a strong sense of place reflective of the destinations in which users work, play, and live, whether in New York, Washington D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, or Boston. Millennium Partners’ deep ties to Boston are evidenced in the thousands of construction and permanent jobs it has created through developments in the region, where it has restored hotels and landmark properties, developed residential, office, retail and entertainment space, and contributed millions of dollars to affordable housing and job training. On the heels of the record-setting development of the nearby Millennium Tower, Burnham Building, and Millennium Place, the construction of Winthrop Center is fueled by Millennium Partner Boston’s commitment to Boston and vision for shaping the future of healthy office space and eco-conscious design with a development that will create far reaching and highly positive economic impacts for both the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the City of Boston.

Product Spotlight: STRUCTURAL RETAINING STARS

ALL STARS ARE NOT THE SAME ! … BE INFORMED … KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

Attention Engineers : Verify All Markings. Accept No Substitutes.

Many of the existing Building Stars were used for, almost exclusively, a structural reason. These Stars have a tendency to fail after many years in place due to the embrittlement of low grade / no grade cast iron. Also, keep in mind, that some of the Stars being sold elsewhere today should actually be classified as “strictly decorative, not for structural use.”

Our Structural Star Building Retaining Washers (Structural Retaining Stars) are domestically manufactured in the USA. Often referred to as Seismic Earthquake Washers or Century Star Washers, our washers have an architecturally accurate historic pattern, and are used as anchor plates or wall washers that are connected to a tie rod or bolt on exterior walls of masonry buildings for structural reinforcement, used to brace the masonry wall against lateral bowing. They are available with a five or six point star design in hot galvanized cast ductile iron or may be custom-ordered in aluminum or bronze.

Our Structural Stars are exclusively manufactured from Ductile Iron to ASTM 65-45-12, which is virtually a ‘semi-steel’ and hot galvanized and are weldable. In comparison to unrated Cast Iron products, there may be a risk when used inappropriately in structural applications.

Our Star Washers are also specified in plans as Gib Plates, Hurricane Bolts, Pattress Plates, Masonry Restraints and Tie Backs.

We can provide you with all of the accessories such as rods, nuts, washers, plates and turnbuckles which you may require to complete the project.

Most Stars have a flat back and a 7/8″ ID. The Hot Galvanized recommended accompaniments are : 3/4 Ogee Washer, 3/4 USS Flat Washer, 3/4-10 Heavy Hex Nut and 3/4-10 x 6′ Threaded Rod. The 13″ Stars require 1″ hardware. All Stars have a thickness of 7/8″, with the exception of the 13″ Stars, which have a thickness of 2-1/2″.

The most popular size is 7-1/2″ (5 Point), although 5-1/2″ (6 Point), 7″ (5 Point), 9″ (6 Point), 10-1/2″ (5 Point), and 13″ (5 Point) are also readily available.

Product Spotlight: F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts

ASTM F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts are manufactured from medium carbon alloy steel that has been quenched and tempered (heat treated) to develop the desired mechanical values. This is the highest strength version of the F1554 specification, with a minimum yield strength of 105 ksi, covering anchor bolts in diameters ranging from 1/2″ through 3″.

F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts can be galvanized even though they are relatively high in strength. The galvanizing does not affect the mechanical properties of the anchor bolt and will not cause hydrogen embrittlement.

F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts should not be welded. Since they develop their strength characteristics through a heat treating process, applying heat (welding) in an uncontrolled environment could change the mechanical properties of the anchor bolt. The American Institute of Steel Construction Manual states “Anchor bolt material that is quenched and tempered (heat treated) should not be welded or heated.”

F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts have a tensile strength of 125-150 ksi and a yield strength of 105 ksi minimum.

BUY ASTM F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts

Allied Bolt and Screw Corporation, located at 1020 Turnpike Street in Canton, Massachusetts stocks F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods in 6 foot lengths up to 1-3/8” diameter, although other diameters and lengths are available.
