THE RIGHT APPROACH

“Please accept my thanks for the development of McLean Hospital land… Our collaborative effort with the Town over the past three years was the right approach to negotiating a development plan with benefits for both the Town and McLean Hospital. We take great pride in the open and direct planning process we pursued with the people of Belmont.”

Bruce M. Cohen, MD, PhD, Former President, McLean Hospital; Professor, Harvard Medical School


The Trade-off Between Office Leasing and Conversion of Buildings to Life Science Use

“In 2018, we began a study process and engaged Nancy J Kelley + Associates to advise Hines about how we should think through the trade-off between office leasing and conversion of buildings to life science use… It makes a ton of sense to convert a building to life science use – $70 million positive to the NPV of office use over a 10-year period… It’s great to have another arrow in the quiver to attract life science tenants. But you have to do the homework building by building first, to get the conclusions as to how the building specs will align for life science leasing.”

Dedicated Service

“The Board of Selectmen and Belmont Town Meeting thank Nancy J Kelley for her dedicated service to the Town on the McLean Hospital Task Force and recognize her significant contributions to the long term benefits for the Town of Belmont. The McLean Land Use Plan will benefit the Town for generations by controlling development on the site, protecting over 100 acres of open space… The work of the Task Force was ultimately endorsed through support of the land use plan by a unanimous vote of the Board of Selectmen, by a two-thirds vote of the Town Meeting and a vote of 69% of the Town’s electorate.”

NANCY J KELLEY ON EAST RIVER SCIENCE PARK
(Now Alexandria Center for Life Science):

“East River Science Park will be a multi-use commercial life science campus dedicated to translational innovation and synergy within New York’s larger scientific community, ultimately resulting in the acceleration of medical breakthroughs from the laboratory bench to the patient’s bedside. Our design provides a comprehensive, architecturally interesting urban vision for a ‘Science Park in the City,’ that is sensitive to the adjacent neighborhood and creates new, vibrant civic spaces that will attract people to the site. Together, these elements will combine with our vision to create an internationally recognized center which will be a striking environment acting as a hub of scientific and public activities that will support the discovery of leading edge treatments, resulting in significant improvements in healthcare and overall improved quality of life.”
