CAMBRIDGE, MA-Biopure Corp. has subleased 13,700 sf of office space here at 58 Charles St. The biopharmaceuticals manufacturer, which has its headquarters around the corner at 11 Hurley St. and a manufacturing facility here, needs to accommodate an expanding workforce.

Biopure sublet the space from Cendant Corp., which was represented by Steve Purpura of Trammell Crow.
