Developers to hold ground-breaking ceremony for Longwood Center
A ground-breaking ceremony is set for Thursday for Longwood Center, a long-stalled laboratory building in Boston’s Longwood Medical Area. The planned 11-story facility will have about 414,000 square feet of rentable space at what is now a vacant lot at Brookline and Longwood avenues. The project is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2014. Longwood Center is being developed by a joint venture of Newton-based National Development, Charles River Realty Investors, Alexandria Real Estate Equities Inc., and Clarion Partners LLC.
