Beal: Life Science Pioneer

Beal: Life Science Pioneer
We didn't even know they had life science back in 1977. But Beal Cos president Robert Beal assures us that's when his firm dove into the life science lab market, acquiring old, one-story garages at Binney and Third streets in East Cambridge to convert into “wet labs” for MIT researchers.
The Beal Cos president Robert Beal
Being such a trailblazer is why he's a featured speaker at Bisnow's2nd Annual Boston Life Sciences Summit, Friday, July 27 at the Boston Marriott Cambridge. (Register here.) With its Cambridge investment flourishing, over time, Beal acquired One Kendall Square, an office building that was mostly converted into labs. In the ‘80s—despite warnings of incredulous brokers—Beal introduced life science uses in Lexington. It purchased property from Kennecott Cooper to transform into labs at One Ledgemont Center.
