New Member Welcome: CAMBER DEVELOPMENT
A Better City is excited to welcome Camber Development to our membership community. Established in 2020 as a real estate investor and developer, Camber currently owns 1.8 million square feet of industrial product in greater Boston and is currently developing a boutique life science project in the South End and a Biomanufacturing campus in Bedford, MA. Leveraging institutional expertise from its leadership team, Camber strives to create a nimble, creative, and entrepreneurial environment within its firm. Camber is particularly interested in bringing energy efficiency measures to its development projects, as well as to its existing assets, and looks forward to engaging in A Better City’s policy work in this space. David Wilkinson returns to A Better City’s Board of Directors and is excited to collaborate with the group in his new role with Camber.
Dave joined Camber Development in March 2021 as Managing Partner. Dave brings extensive institutional real estate investment and management experience to Camber, having spent the previous nine years at Tishman Speyer.

In total, Dave was directly responsible for managing approximately $3.0 billion in trophy real estate in Boston. Dave served a critical role in helping establish Breakthrough Properties (Tishman Speyer’s life science venture) by securing a full-building lease with CRISPR Therapeutics at 105 West First Street in South Boston, which earned the 2020 Commercial Brokers Association Life Science Deal of the Year award.
