Boston Properties co-founder and CEO Edward Linde passed away yesterday, leaving Chairman Mortimer Zuckerman in charge of the real estate investment trust firm. Linde died of complications from pneumonia, according to the Associated Press. Linde and Zuckerman founded Boston Properties in 1970 and remained close over the years, according to a statement from Zuckerman. “We spoke almost every day and found the opportunity to laugh at both the ups and downs of the real estate business,” Zuckerman said.
