IQHQ, a California company that specializes in building life-sciences buildings, is proposing to build three more on a site at 155 North Beacon St. in Brighton now occupied by "an older, non-descript building, nearing the end of its useful life" - and the Sound Museum recording studio.
In a filing with the BPDA today, IQHQ says it's planning three buildings with a total of 409,395 square feet, plus a two-level, 328-car garage and a tree-lined, publicly accessible plaza. Two of the buildings would be six stories, the other three. Once fully occupied, the buildings would have room for up to 700 workers, IQHQ says.
IQHQ says it has started working with Brighton High School on middle and high-school level STEM programs and would be open to talking to the city's two community colleges - Roxbury and Bunker Hill - and with local job-training programs about similar classes at those levels.
IQHQ hopes to begin 30 months of construction in mid-2022 of what would be the latest development project in the fast-changing Guest Street corridor.
