MEDFORD, Mass.--CIM Group, a community-focused real estate and infrastructure owner, operator, lender and developer, announced today that a CIM-managed fund has closed a $147.65 million loan to The Davis Companies (Davis) and Partners Group for One Cabot, a 318,993-square-foot office in Medford, Massachusetts.

One Cabot is situated in the growing life science corridor of Charleston-Somerville-Medford. Loan proceeds will be used to finance the recapitalization and partial conversion of the building from all office use to a first-class office/R&D/life science facility.

Located at 1 Cabot Road, the four-story building currently comprises 279,185 square feet of office space and 39,808 square feet of data center space.

The property sits directly off Route 16 and nearby Interstate 93 and benefits from direct public transportation access to the MBTA Orange Line subway, offering easy connectivity to downtown Boston, Cambridge, the surrounding suburbs, and Boston Logan International Airport. Additionally, One Cabot benefits from being just minutes away from best-in-class retail amenities, including Assembly Row in Somerville and Station Landing.
