The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has extended its lease for the Middlesex County Superior Courthouse at TradeCenter 128 in Woburn for a seven-year term. This renewal comes five years after the Court moved from the Edward J. Sullivan Courthouse in Cambridge, which was in need of extensive renovations and has since been slated for redevelopment.
Woburn-based commercial real estate firm Cummings Properties custom built the approximately 139,000-square-foot space for the Court in 2007, during the first phase of construction of the now nearly 700,000-square-foot TradeCenter 128 business park. The Courthouse features 15 courtrooms, clerks' offices, judges' chambers, the Probation Department, and the law library, as well as a dedicated sally port and secured, covered parking for judges.
Cummings Properties president and CEO Dennis Clarke said, “It has been our pleasure to provide the Court a modern, first-class facility. The on-site amenities, free parking, and highway location, combined with Woburn’s centrality within Middlesex County, make this site convenient and appealing for the staff as well as the many other Massachusetts residents who visit the Court.”
An eye-catching I-95 landmark, TradeCenter 128 fronts the highway, less than two miles from its intersection with I-93. It is also accessible by public transit, with MBTA bus route 134 delivering passengers directly to the campus from Wellington Station via Medford, Winchester, and Woburn.
