Innovation is the key to progress. That’s what 74M represents for life science development. Located in Somerville, Massachusetts, Greystar is developing 74M, a state-of-the-art laboratory and research facility designed to drive scientific innovation to new heights.

As the first life science development of its kind, Greystar recognized the need for a modern facility that accommodates the latest technologies and research methodologies. With this in mind, 74M was designed to foster collaboration and innovation, with flexible floor plans and amenities that will enable researchers to focus on their work.

The goal was not only to create a functional space, but also one that is visually stunning. The 15 tenant floors will feature a glass façade that provides natural light, while the interior was designed to encourage collaboration and interaction between researchers.

74M will be more than just an office building. It will function as a hub for innovation and collaboration, bringing together some of the brightest minds in the life science industry.

Inside the building, tenants will have access to best-in-class amenities, including a fitness center, a rooftop lounge, outdoor spaces, and unbelieve views of Boston, providing a well-rounded experience that extends beyond the laboratory. A variety of well-known artists, including Tara Donovan, Charles Gaines, and Timothy Curtis, will contribute to the robust art program displayed in the lobby, bike room, and amenity spaces.

In addition to its impressive features, this project is on track to be LEED Platinum-certified, meaning it will be developed with sustainability in mind. From its energy-efficient systems to its eco-friendly materials, this building was designed to reduce its environmental impact and promote sustainable practices. The property will also obtain WELL Platinum, WiredScore Platinum, and SmartScore certifications for its focus on occupants' well-being, advanced digital infrastructure, and technology use to optimize sustainability.

74M will be a game-changer in life science. Its cutting-edge design and amenities, combined with its collaborative environment, will make it the ideal location for companies looking to push the boundaries of scientific innovation. As the industry continues to evolve, 74M will be at the forefront, shaping the future of life science development.
