MENLO PARK, CA, June 5, 2014 – GI Partners announced the acquisition of 850 Winter Street in the Reservoir Woods office park, located in Waltham, Massachusetts. The acquisition was made through TechCore, LLC (“TechCore”), which is a $1 billion discretionary core real estate fund managed by GI Partners on behalf of the California Public Employees' Retirement System (“CalPERS”).

850 Winter Street is a three-story building comprised of 180,039 square feet of life science and office space with a subterranean parking garage. Designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, the property is certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council and was developed in 2008.

Michael Wong, Director of GI Partners, said, “850 Winter is a premier building in one of Greater Boston’s most prominent life science and office markets. It has a very high quality tenant roster, and its location and amenities make it an attractive choice for companies seeking to be near Route 128.”
