Legacy Property

American Twine Building


Cambridge, MA

The American Twine Office Park is part of the award-winning East Cambridge Riverfront Plan, an area that serves the nation’s leading software, biotechnology and management consulting firms. It was renovated by GID in 1984 at a cost of approximately $11 million. Two three-story atriums serve as primary entrances. Interior office space was renovated to recapture the original architecture featuring exposed brick walls, heavy wooden columns and beams throughout. Only minor tenant improvements were required for this building. We invested approximately $750,000 into upgrading the facade and the HVAC system. By putting our efforts into property management and intensifying tenant relations, we brought the occupancy rate to 90% within a year of acquiring the building.
