100 Hood Park Drive
BOSTON and MILPITAS, Calif., Feb. 15 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — View, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIEW) (“View”), the leader in smart building technology, announced that its smart windows will be installed at 100 Hood Park Drive, an office and seven-story labs that will be a key part of Hood Park, a multi-building life science and technology center being developed by Trademark in Charlestown, Boston. Trademark Partners is transforming the former HP Hood dairy into an urban campus with office and laboratory workspaces, modern residences and street-level retail. View Smart Windows is expected to be installed in all Hood Park office buildings as the sprawling campus continues to expand.
Designed for life science companies with over 150,000 square feet of flexible lab space, 100 Hood Park Drive will be fully equipped with View Smart Windows, creating a healthier, more productive environment filled with natural light and offering a view of Boston.
View Smart Windows transforms buildings into responsive environments that automatically adjust to control heat and glare without the need for blinds. This is especially useful in life science buildings, where sterile working environments and alert, healthy scientists are critical to success. Blinds act as a reservoir of dust and germs that can contaminate sensitive materials and block shorter wavelength sunlight that disinfects surfaces. View Smart Windows eliminates these issues, while providing privacy to protect intellectual property and enabling a greater variety of workspace configurations, including those with workstations directly in front of windows.
“We are thrilled to bring the benefits of View Smart Windows to tenants at 100 Hood Park Drive,” said Mark Rosenshein, partner at Trademark Partners. “Boston is rapidly becoming one of the world’s leading life sciences markets. We designed the entire Hood Park campus to optimize occupant health, comfort and productivity, helping our tenants attract the best talent to the area. The health benefits of increased access to natural light and exterior views made View Smart Windows a logical choice for the Hood Park project.
View Smart Windows provides significant health benefits by reducing the incidence of eye strain and headaches by more than 50%. A recent to study found that employees working in rooms with View Smart Windows slept 37 minutes longer each night, scored 42% better on cognitive tests, and were 14% more productive than those working in equivalent rooms with regular windows and blinds . View Smart Windows also reduces lighting and HVAC energy consumption by up to 20%.
“The life sciences industry is booming, and smart, healthy and sustainable workspaces are key to attracting and retaining top talent,” said Brian Klansky, Vice President of View. “View continues to show significant traction in the industry and is excited to partner with Hood Park and Trademark Partners to accelerate innovation in Boston.”
SMMA served as architect and Lee Kennedy Company as general contractor for 100 Hood Park Drive. Newmark is the rental agent.
