About this Project

Margulies Perruzzi worked with Campanelli Companies to reposition Upland Road to appeal to tenants within the Route 128 South marketplace.

MP’s design includes a dramatic amenity street that connects the new east and west entries and offers all tenants access to the new, two-story sky-lit atrium. This central street with storefront-style tenant entrances is dotted with impromptu gathering spaces to create a community for tenants.

The large floor plates and exposed high ceilings provide tenants with open, flexible, and brightly lit spaces and can accommodate companies starting at 11,000 square feet. Multiple new exterior entrances provide convenient access to parking. New landscaped areas offer tenants seating space for outdoor meetings.

A former Polaroid manufacturing center, Upland’s dramatic revitalization includes a new full-service café, a best-in-market fitness center with a virtual ride instruction spin studio, conference facilities, and a gaming area with foosball, ping pong tables and shuffleboard.
