Xylem leases 39,000 square feet at Cummings Center
Global firm Xylem, Inc. has leased 39,000 square feet of first-class office, lab, and manufacturing space at 100 Cummings Center in Beverly. The newly built out facility, in space formerly occupied by Microsoft, now serves as the headquarters for the water technology company’s flow control business.
Xylem worked directly with Jamie McManus, leasing officer for Cummings Properties, on the transaction. The new Cummings Center site consolidates offices previously located in Gloucester and Woburn.
A spinoff from ITT Corporation, Xylem designs and manufactures pumps of all sorts, from those found in restaurant soda fountain machines to those used in the bilges of commercial fishing boats.
“At Xylem, we’re dedicated to addressing the planet’s most challenging water issues with leading-edge fluid technology and equipment solutions,” said John Sullivan, vice president of finance at Xylem. “We believe our new facility at Cummings Center will help us attract the best talent and ensure that we continue to deliver unequaled support and service to our global customers.”
Xylem’s move comes on the heels of the announcement of another significant lease at the North Shore office and technology park: American Renal Associate’s signing for 49,000 square feet at 500 Cummings Center.
Award-winning Cummings Center offers first-class space in new and newly renovated buildings for executive offices, medical practices, and research laboratories. Cummings Center is managed by Cummings Properties, which has a portfolio of 10 million square feet of prime commercial real estatein 10 communities surrounding Boston.
