Duffy will lead Boylston Properties Management Company at the Growing Life Science Campus at Arsenal Yards
Thursday, May 19, 2022 – Boston, MA – Boylston Properties, a Boston-based developer of mixed-use properties, announced today that Robyn Duffy is joining as Director of Property Management, leading a new vertically-integrated property management arm of the growing real estate firm. The launch of Boylston Properties Management Company (BPMC) follows the development of 400,000 sf of state-of-the-art life science space at Arsenal Yards in Watertown, and enables the firm to stay as close as possible to the end-user experience.
Boylston Properties Management Company is being created to offer professional property management services with a commitment to proactiveness, efficiency, and a personalized, first-class tenant experience. Boylston Properties launched BPMC in its life science portfolio of 108,000 sf at 200 Arsenal Yards Blvd, which is fully occupied by three tenants, in addition to several retail properties in Boston and Needham that it will also serve. BPMC will be further built out ahead of November 2022, when seven additional life science tenants will move in to the remaining approximate 300,000 sf at the future 100 and 500 Forge life science properties at Arsenal Yards.
“If there’s one thing that our team is known for, it’s close, valued tenant relationships and strong industry partnerships,” said Bill McQuillan, Founding Principal of Boylston Properties. “We’re bringing property management in-house because we aim to deliver professional, white-glove service and work with best-in-class partners — from development, through construction, and now full circle to tenant relations and day-to-day management. Robyn has been our partner for 6 years, beginning at the LINX building in Watertown, and she is the perfect person to drive BPMC. She understands our values and appreciates what we aim to deliver at our properties day-in and day-out.”
Robyn Duffy joins Boylston Properties from Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), where she has been a Group Manager since 2019, managing a portfolio of 800,000 square feet of lab, medical office, office and industrial space. As a Group Manager, Robyn was responsible for client relations, team training and growth, implementation of strategic plans for properties, and creating, managing, and reviewing annual budgets and financials. Prior to joining JLL, Robyn worked as the Senior Property Manager for Lincoln Property Company where she was responsible for the management and oversight of a mixed-use portfolio of 28 buildings which included retail, residential, and office on Newbury Street in Boston’s Back Bay.
