Leasing commercial real estate in Boston

Leasing affordable turnkey office, research, or production space in Boston, Cambridge or elsewhere is one of the most critical decisions many firms will make.  And beyond the simple cost of the space itself, there are many even more serious considerations that must never be overlooked. Very important among these is the satisfaction, morale and productivity of the people who will occupy any facility.

While there will usually be substantial dollars involved in acquiring any space, the salaries incurred in actually populating the space are usually far greater by comparison. People who become non-productive, or whose motivation is lessened or restricted because of space they donít like, can quickly become a huge unjustifiable expense. Not withstanding all of the above, Cummings Properties leases inexpensive office space for as little as $8.00 per square foot.

Most of Cummings Properties' affordable ready-to-use office and medical buildings for lease in the Boston, Massachusetts area directly abut major highways. They also tend to be very close to other services or amenities that make use of their leased space much easier and more practical for all concerned. Cummings Park and West Cummings Park in Woburn, and Cummings Center in Beverly are outstanding examples of how effectively these useful services and amenities can be incorporated into well-thought-out business parks. Many buildings are Energy Star buildings or built to LEED standards.

Since its founding, Cummings Properties has always endeavored to bundle high quality leaseable real estate and prompt, professional, friendly service. Because of its solid goals and principles, the company has enjoyed three decades of growing economic success, community support, increased employee longevity, and an unlimited potential for future growth and opportunity. Starbucks and Au Bon Pain restaurants at Cummings' office and research parks near Boston are very popular. Cummings Center in Beverly MA is served by two on campus banks and by a full service branch of Merrill Lynch.

Cummings Foundation

(CFI). Founded in 1986, CFI is an operating foundation, which also owns and operates the not-for-profit New Horizons retirement communities in Massachusetts. Additionally, CFI owns Veterinary School at Tufts, LLC, which it operates in conjunction with Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University.
