Boston Properties bought the massive two million-sf class A Carnegie Center two years ago, and recently went into the ground with its first spec office building at the site, the 65,000-sf 302 Carnegie Center. Now, Boston has its first tenant in the building, Akros Pharma, Inc., which signed on the dotted line for 15,500 sf.

Akros is a wholly owned subsidiary of a major Japanese corporation. Based in NYC until now, Akros will use the space as its US headquarters. Motoko Ueno Culp of Redac Inc. repped Akros; John Brandenbergh, Boston’s VP of marketing and leasing, spoke for the owner.

Boston is currently marketing a million feet of build-to-suit space adjacent to Carnegie Center, and expects to break ground on the 140,000-sf 901 Carnegie Center later this year.
