WuXi Biologics Plans $60M Office Project in Worcester, Massachusetts
WORCESTER, MASS. — Chinese biomanufacturing company WuXi Biologics will develop a $60 million office project in Worcester, approximately 45 miles west of Boston.

Worcester Business Development Corp. (WBDC) sold the 7-acre parcel of land to WuXi for $1.5 million. Brian Cohen, Chris McCauley and Colin Coughlin of CBRE represented WuXi Biologics in the transaction. Jim Umphrey and Drew Higgins represented WBDC. WuXi expects the facility to be operable in 2020.
