Former Hewlett-Packard (HP) Campus 2011
In 2011 Atlantic Management Corporation purchased the 109-acre former Hewlett Packard campus located off Simarano Drive in Marlborough, MA. Atlantic Management saw the property as a perfect fit for the kind of high-end, amenity-laden, mixed-use development that today’s market demands. Atlantic Management worked closely with the City of Marlborough to realize a vision that benefits the community and creates a landmark corporate destination.
In December 2012, the City of Marlborough unanimously approved zoning allowing Atlantic Management to develop a cutting-edge, mixed-use “Live-Work-Play-Stay” master planned campus that will be home to the area’s premier companies, apartments, retail stores, and hospitality amenities. The development, called Marlborough Hills, will allow corporate tenants to offer employees the very best in shopping, dining and living on a 109-acre self-contained parcel conveniently located adjacent to I-495 on the Boston-Worcester corridor.
Atlantic Management has a successful track record of redeveloping outdated suburban office parks into market responsive, lively corporate campuses, including the 110-acre Lexington Technology Park for Shire Pharmaceuticals. Upon completion, the existing campus will transform into a scenic community, where talented employees can live, work, and play. Conceived with close attention to design and landscaping, the modern architecture and pedestrian-friendly streetscapes will impress and delight residents, employees and guests.
The new development will feature up to 1.05 million sq. ft. of corporate office, R&D, biotech and technology space; 350 market rate, high end residential units; 163 high quality hotel rooms; a 10,000 square foot daycare center; and up to 50,000 square feet of amenity and service retail. Marlborough Hills has paved the way for innovation in the City with Quest Diagnostics’ regional “Lab of the Future,” which opened in October 2014 and GE Healthcare’s new US Life Sciences Headquarters, anticipated to open in June 2015; both of which consist of approximately 210,000 square feet. Of the other committed mixed-use components, Avalon Bay Communities 350-unit residential development commenced leasing in the first quarter of 2015, and the 163-room Hilton Garden Inn will open in early 2016. Additionally, a proposed 10,000 square foot daycare center is anticipated for early 2016.
Atlantic Management’s commitment to the redevelopment of the former Hewlett Packard campus will turn Marlborough Hills into one of the most vibrant mixed-use development centers in New England. The economic transformation of the property has been recognized for facilitating commercial and residential growth within the City, with the project being named one of the top five real estate stories of the year, according to the Boston Business Journal (BBJ), as well as receiving an award from the 495/MetroWest Partnership acknowledging the individual leadership and impact to the region. Through a shared sense of vision and collaboration between Atlantic Management and the City of Marlborough, the Marlborough Hills mixed-use “Live-Work-Play-Stay” development has brought about numerous civic, economic, and lifestyle benefits to visitors and residents, and has fostered a campus setting with a purpose for helping companies attract and retain top talent.
