  • 10/27/2015Big Changes to the Cambridge Life Sciences Landlord Landscape
    When it comes to commercial lab and office space, Cambridge is still one of the hottest markets in the country. This is especially true in the life sciences industry, where recent years have brought a number of big arrivals, transactions, and expansions in that sector. The Oct. 8 announcement that Blackstone Group is acquiring Biomed […] Read More
  • 10/5/2015Boston: Shoe Capital of the U.S.?
    When we think of Boston, many things come to mind: Redcoats and Colonists, the Irish Diaspora, our rich sports heritage, the Marathon, our colleges and universities…dudes from Malden yelling at fish. But shoes? Actually, yes. Greater Boston is a national hub for some of the world’s biggest shoe brands – and it’s been that way […] Read More
  • 9/30/2015Blockbuster Mergers Make Cresa’s Brand Stronger
    By now you’ve no doubt heard about the merger of Cushman Wakefield and DTZ, forming one of the world’s largest commercial real estate companies. The press release announcement boasted the two companies have a combined “$5 billion in revenue, 43,000 employees, more than 4.3 billion square feet under management, and $191 billion in transaction value.” […] Read More
  • 9/10/2015Security Detail: What You Need to Know About That Pesky Deposit
    Security deposits. They’re an important, albeit boilerplate, part of most lease agreements. You may not know what they’re for, however, or that they can be negotiable. Good news: we’re here to help. What is a security deposit? A security deposit is in place to protect the entire out-of-pocket expense a landlord must incur when signing […] Read More
  • 8/20/2015For Downtown Builders, Real Estate Cycles are but a Vapor.
    Remember the hole in the ground at One Franklin Street that blotted Downtown Crossing for more than two years following the financial crisis? Of course you do. We all do. The crater was a visual reminder of an economy and real estate market gone haywire – how a project can build so much momentum and […] Read More
  • 8/20/2015In a Landlord-friendly Market, Cresa is Your Silver Lining
    Tenants are nervous. Rightly so, some say. Landlords appear to have much more of the upper-hand than they would have had a few years ago, able to lease available space with fewer concessions. In a bullish Boston real estate market like the one we’re experiencing, it may be tempting for commercial tenants to throw their […] Read More
  • 7/9/2015Thinking of Relocating? Count the Costs.
    When evaluating a real estate decision, many tenants naturally gravitate toward focusing on the rental rate. The lease rate is important but it’s not everything. Tenants contemplating a move should consider the many build-out costs – and even potential financial pitfalls – associated with relocating. While some commercial tenants lease new space as-is, the vast […] Read More
  • 6/26/2015What it Takes to Stand Out From the Real Estate “Pack” in 2015
    Real estate brokerage isn’t what it used to be. In the past, possessing a good knowledge of the market (what’s available and where) and avoiding conflicts of interest could make someone a pretty good commercial broker. This is no longer the case. Increased client expectations and technological changes are raising the bar for what it […] Read More
  • 5/27/2015Can Just Anyone Become a Project Manager These Days?
    Looking around the room at a gathering of my colleagues recently, I was struck by the fact that, 25 years ago, many of our positions wouldn’t exist. We’re project managers, representing small and large firms that specialize in specific client types and those covering a broad range. The small group of highly functioning professionals has […] Read More
  • 5/12/2015It’s the South Shore’s Time to Shine
    If Cambridge, the Route 128 corridor and Seaport District are the beautiful and upwardly mobile stepsisters of Greater Boston commercial real estate, the South Shore is Cinderella – perpetually scorned and left out of the party. But why? It has many of the required amenities to be a thriving commercial office region: parking, public transportation, […] Read More

Project Management

The visualization, planning, design, construction, and fitting out your new workspace is not something you should undertake alone. Our project management team is your assurance that it happens in a creative, timely, cost-effective way. 


We understand that the interests of landlords and developers are not always aligned with yours. We manage the entire process – be it a Build-to-Suit or a tenant fit-out - advising on all issues of program, feasibility, test-fits during site selection. We collaborate with our real estate Advisors during landlord negotiations, maximizing allowances, looking out for your interests at every turn. Additionally, we make sure you get the workplace environment you pay for — and that your people expect — by taking complete control of the following:


Develop the program, advise you on options, explore and plan workplace strategies, develop schemes that support your business objectives.


Manage the engagement of designers, contractors, voice/data suppliers, workstation, furniture and all other providers. 


Take charge of projecting/controlling spending for your project, proactively advising you on issues, creating savings that often exceed our fees.


Oversee the entire project schedule, informing you of key dates, keeping design, construction and vendor processes running in a timely fashion. 


Oversee the process to assure that the team works toward common goals to deliver the perfect outcome for your project.


Manage and schedule all owner-controlled vendors, coordinate with the contractor on site to assure seamless deliveries and installs.


Implement your entire move, plan the transition, coordinate internal committees, hire the mover, provide 24/7 move coordination, so your people keep working with as few distractions as possible.
