BOSTON-Mega-REIT Boston Properties reported in its third quarter results a 9.9% quarter to quarter increase in funds from operations. Total revenue rose to $308 million from $276 million for the same period last year. The increase is attributed to a number of new developments by the locally based company.

Among the company’s significant developments this past quarter is the $1.06 billion acquisition of 399 Park Avenue, a 1.68 million-sf building in New York City.
