Marlborough, MA JLL’s MetroWest leasing team has completed three new leases totaling 23,299 s/f within Lake Williams Corporate Center, a 210,000 s/f office campus at 62 Forest St. JLL managing director Phil DeSimone and vice president Rob Mahoney represented ownership, a client of Washington Capital Management, Inc.

Tyler Technologies leased 7,000 s/f. The tenant was represented by Stan Burwick, president of New England Industrial Properties. 

Walgreens relocated their New England sales offices to Lake Williams from Waltham, signing a long-term lease for 7,200 s/f. Walgreens was represented by Arlon Brown, senior advisor of SVN Parsons Commercial Group

The largest of the new leases was signed by Immunovia, a Swedish life science start up focused on the development and diagnosis of cancer and autoimmune diseases. Immunovia, represented by CBRE senior vice president Rob Walles, chose Lake Williams Center as the site of their new North American beachhead, signing a lease for 8,700 s/f. 

The three firms will join Babcock Power, who recently leased 46,000 square feet taking over a full floor here.

JLL managing director Phil DeSimone and vice president Rob Mahoney represented Washington Capital Management in negotiations for the three transactions.

This recent leasing activity brings the park’s total occupancy to over 97%. These three new tenants are a mix of both start up and established companies from a variety of different industries. 

“We’re excited to welcome these dynamic companies, a combination of both local Marlborough firms and newer entrants arriving from outside 495/West and New England,” said Mahoney. “It speaks to ownership’s vision and commitment to the asset, and the Center’s universal appeal to diverse companies with varying usage needs, from life science and R&D to a more traditional office use. It’s also a testament to the success of Marlborough and the region as an increasing number of companies continue to recognize the value of establishing their operations here.”
