A developer wants to replace a two-story warehouse at 155 North Beacon St. in Brighton, now home to the Sound Museum rehersal studios across from the Tin Tin Buffet, with a four-building complex of research labs and office space.
In a letter of intent filed with the BPDA, IQHQ, which specializes in new biotech construction, says it will soon file detailed plans for the 354,000-square-foot complex at the intersection of North Beacon and Life Street, which connects the site to the Guest Street development corridor.
All that life-sciences research work will make for hungry scientists, technicians and FDA drug-approval applications, so IQHQ is also planning ground-floor restaurant space for times when people just don't want Chinese buffet as well as room for other retail uses. The buildings would sit atop an underground garage.
The buildings will sit around a courtyard, which the public will be able to access - with the possibility of a further "series of raised, tiered courtyards" that will create "a natural amphitheater design within the campus setting."
