R.W. Holmes Realty is pleased to announce the leasing of 50,000 SF at Waltham Research Park to Braidy Industries. The 220,000 SF three building complex is exclusively listed by Arthur Amadei, SVP of R.W. Holmes. Renovated in 2017, the buildings are ideal for Office R&D or lab space. Arthur Amadei represented the park’s owner, Hillside Associates, in the completion of the deal for the Kentucky-based aluminum manufacturer. T3 Advisors represented the tenant in the transaction.
Braidy Industries recently acquired Veloxint Corporation and the 50,000 SF Research Park location will be the home of Veloxint Research and prototyping facilities. The MIT developed Veloxint provides progressive, high performing products and parts enabled though their novel nanocrystalline metal alloys and was recently awarded the 2018 S&P Platts Global Metals Breakthrough Solution of the Year award. Veloxint was previously headquartered in Framingham, growing from 5,000 SF to 50,000 SF.
Braidy Industries plans on applying technology originated by Veloxint to produce stronger, lighter metals that can be used to make lighter vehicles, airplanes and other forms of transportation. These materials will be produced in the 1 million SF facility in Kentucky that is currently under construction.
