QUINCY, MA-A 50,000-sf lease has brought 150 Newport Ave. to 100% occupancy, owners Normandy Real Estate Partners have said. Quincy College will occupy the space in the 121,000-sf building not taken earlier this year by anchor tenant British Telecom.

Normandy principal Raymond Trevisan says efficient floor plates exceeding 32,000 sf and proximity to the Quincy College campus were factors in landing the school as a tenant, as well as the direct access to Boston and suburban South Shore communities afforded by 150 Newport Ave.’s presence in North Quincy. “The excellent location on the MBTA [subway] line and first-class amenities helped our team lease this building in a short period of time,” says Trevisan, whose firm also provides on-site property management services.

Richards Barry Joyce & Partners handled the leasing assignment for 150 Newport Ave. RBJ principal Michael Frisoli praised Normandy’s stewardship of the property, the first CRE asset acquired in Greater Boston by the Morristown, NJ-based real estate investment firm. Normandy paid $13.6 million to secure the four-story building in December 2005 and set about on a gut rehab of the vacant structure that culminated with the Quincy College lease.
