BOSTON– MetLife, Inc. has appointed JLL as the exclusive leasing agent for One Beacon Street, a landmark of the Boston skyline. Meeting the demands of Boston’s dynamic tenant base, One Beacon boasts unparalleled views, a robust infrastructure, a variety of amenities and an extremely accessible location.
One Beacon Street is LEED Platinum certified and offers more than one million square feet of first class office space, including low-rise space with high-rise views given its position atop Beacon Hill. The property’s strong amenities package includes: the all new UMass Club, Boston Sports Club, Rebecca’s Café, secure bike storage, underground parking, 24-hour security, a full-service bank, and much more just a short walk away.
Located in the heart of downtown Boston, One Beacon Street stands at the intersection of the Financial District and the Back Bay. This prime location provides tenants with convenient transportation access. North and South Stations which service the commuter rail are both within six blocks of the property, and the MBTA’s Red, Green, Orange and Blue Lines all converge at nearby stations. In addition, One Beacon offers swift entrance and egress to and from Massachusetts’ major highways.
“MetLife is excited to partner with JLL on One Beacon, which is a core trophy asset and a landmark component of the skyline of Boston,” said Joel Redmon, managing director at MetLife Investment Management. “We look forward to working with JLL to continue to attract a wide range of tenants who value the building’s prime location, rich amenity set, and superior features, including the best views of Boston.”
According to JLL Managing Director Bill Barrack: “We are eager to re-introduce One Beacon Street to the Boston brokerage and tenant community. We truly believe this exceptional property can be an exciting home to all types of companies looking for efficient, modern offices that can support a collaborative work environment.”
