One of the new spec buildings on Alexander Road has

already found a tenant. Mathematica Policy Research Inc. has signed

a lease for 72,000 square feet of office space at 600 Alexander Park,

now under construction and owned by Trammell Crow Company. The prominent

public policy research firm will move from 54,000 square feet at Morgan

Lane but maintain its current facility at 311 Enterprise Drive as

its survey operations center.

"Over the past several years, the company has experienced significant

growth," says Charles E. Metcalf, president of Mathematica. "This

new office space will accommodate our current need for space and offer

additional opportunity for future growth." The building offers

state-of-the-art technology, a park-like setting with a lake view,

and close proximity to the Princeton Junction train station.

Mathematica’s move was made visible last October when it listed its

Morgan Lane space available for a two-year sublease starting January

1, 2000. Bob Morford of the Garibaldi Group served as the real estate

broker for Mathematica, and Trammell Crow was represented by GMH Realty.

Though the building was designed by the Hillier Group, CUH2A has been

chosen to provide interior design, architectural, and design-related

engineering services and Greenhill Construction Advisors Inc, will

provide construction oversight.

Mathematica, one of the nation’s leading independent research firms,

conducts policy research and surveys for federal and state governments,

as well as private clients. The employee-owned firm also has offices

in Washington and Cambridge. Mathematica’s studies have focussed on

education, welfare, employment, health care, nutrition, and early

childhood policies.
