In an uncharacteristic move by the Town of Needham, two permitting changes were made this June. Needham residents have expressed an urge to enhance Downtown Needham with the hope that the reform will pave the way for more significant growth. Among the changes that have taken place, businesses will now have an easier time altering the façade of their office, flex and industrial buildings. Will this have an impact on the look and feel of Needham/Newton office buildings and their asset class?
