NEWTON, MA–The RMR Group and ABP Trust are launching an office fund with an immediate purchasing power of $300 million — which is expected to grow to $500 million — and that has been seeded with 15 office buildings owned by ABP, otherwise known as the Portnoy Family Office, that are worth $206 million. RMR is committing $100 million to the endeavor, which is called the RMR Office Property Fund LP.
