MARLBORO, MA-Sepracor Inc., a locally based pharmaceutical company, is building an office and laboratory building here, off Robin Hill Road. The company signed a 15-year lease for the 196,200-sf space.

Needham-based Waterford Development Corp. is developing the $28 million project, which is being constructed on 60 acres owned by a private school. Sepracor’s lease provides it with an option to lease two additional buildings totaling about 232,400 sf that could eventually be developed on the same site. The company will also have the first right to purchase the entire property in June of 2002.

The City Council’s finance committee here is currently considering the request.
