CONSTRUCTION TOPS OUT FOR 86,000-SQUARE-FOOT ALLSTON LANDING ADDITION
BOSTON — Construction had topped out for an 86,000-square-foot addition to Genzyme’s Allston Landing biomanufacturing facility, located along the Charles River in Boston. The addition, which was designed by ARC/Architectural Resources Cambridge, will add space for manufacturing and support functions. It will also include the construction of a new 26,000-square-foot underground cogeneration plant that will generate steam for plans operations, as well as generate electricity. ARC served as project architect for the plant’s original construction in 1991 and, since then, has designed more than 1 million square feet of new construction and renovation projects for Genzyme since then. Completion is scheduled for spring 2010. General contracting services are being provided by Turner Construction Co.
