CAMBRIDGE, MA-A technology firm’s flight to quality has also helped it nearly double its operation. Xcitex Inc.’s four-year lease on 4,287 sf of class A office space at 25 First St. moves the company from class B space at 432 Columbia St.

“It was definitely a flight to quality,” Tucker Hansen, with Meredith & Grew, the tenant’s representative “The location works very well for them.”

Xcitex, which provides motion capture and analysis products for high-speed and industrial video cameras, spent six years at its old location. The company’s move into the three-story First Street building brings a location within walking distance of the Cambridgeside Galleria mall and public transportation. Terms of the lease were not disclosed but the property, 85% occupied by tenants that include Sapient, a business and IT planning company and high-tech giant Oracle, generally rents in the low $20 per-sf range, Hansen says.
