According to an article by Jay Fitzgerald, "owners and developers across Eastern Massachusetts are seeking to reinvent the suburban office park, taking a page from urban revitalization that transformed old mill and factory buildings into mixed-use developments of housing, retail, and office spaces."

The article cites examples (with renderings and status updates in some cases) of suburban office park renovation projects along Interstate 495 and Route 128 in Massachusetts, including:

  • Northwest Park in Burlington
  • Wells Avenue Park in Newton
  • New England Executive Park in Burlington
  • Elmwood Park: the former headquarters of data storage giant EMC Corp. in Hopkinton
