Charlestown, MA – Lee Kennedy Co. has completed 100 Hood Park Drive, a key component in the reimagining of the former H.P. Hood Dairy Plant into a life science/technology hub being developed by Catamount Management.
The seven-story building delivers 54,000sf of new laboratory/R&D shell space, over 880 parking spaces, and 24,000sf of retail space. The garage also comes equipped with 50 electric vehicle charging stations and 54 bike storage spaces, laying the foundation to accommodate the region’s growing community of life science and technology tenants.
Situated on 20 acres in Charlestown with easy access to the MBTA Orange Line and Rt. 93, Hood Park will combine first-class office, lab and R&D space along with a hotel, luxury apartments, retail space and Hood Green, a one-acre greenspace that will serve as a public venue for outdoor events such as concerts, neighborhood festivals and farmer’s markets. Hood Park will also feature a series of pocket parks, gathering spaces and landscaped rooftop terraces designed to maximize greenspace on the campus.
Hood Park was master-planned by SMMA (Symmes Maini McKee Associates) and is being built in phases over the next decade under the guidance of Trademark Partners. The next major project will be 10 Stack Street (designed by SMMA), a fully-permitted, 350,000sf Class-A lab and office building that will serve as the commercial anchor to Hood Park.
