Margulies Perruzzi was retained to design 175-185 Wyman Street, a three-story office building campus comprising 335,000 square feet, as an extension of Hobbs Brook’s Wyman Street office park. The campus is comprised of two Class A office buildings with a full-service cafeteria, locker rooms, and both structured and surface parking.
The buildings are sited on one of the most highly prized and visible locations along Route 128 in Waltham. After ten years of unsuccessful development efforts by multiple owners/developers to build a single, taller building requiring a variance, MP developed a unique concept for the site. Featuring a beautifully landscaped courtyard protected from the noise of the highway, two lower buildings are unified in a “campus” setting. MP worked with the existing grades to fit parking below office levels in order to meet the developer’s requested parking counts, while still meeting tight zoning height restrictions. Large office floor plates maximize the window line, with views of the surrounding woods, the courtyard, the Cambridge Reservoir, and hills of Weston beyond.
