Investment overview

22 Drydock (the “Project”) is a $400M+ development of a 344,000 rentable square foot life science asset in Boston, MA. The Project lies at the heart of Boston’s Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park and the Seaport District and will be the third installment of a successful innovation campus developed by Related Beal that has been leased and already includes Vertex as a tenant

The 7-story building will consist of 344,000 rentable s.f. of life science on floors 1-7, and a 2-story, 138- space below-grade garage. In addition to Vertex space, there will be a small restaurant / café on the ground floor as well as a dedicated lab space for the Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute, which is a non-profit continuing education program for careers as entry-level lab technicians.

The building will be situated on a 1.8-acre parcel leased from the Economic Development and Industrial Corporation of Boston for a term of 99 years.

The Sponsor has committed to raising ~10% of equity from Minority and Women Business Enterprises (“MWBE”) and accredited minority and women investors to passively co-invest in the development of the Project. Per the Base Case, BREIF (Boston Real Estate Inclusion Fund) will invest its portion of the required equity alongside a fund managed by an affiliate of Basis Investment Group (“BIG”).
