Freight Farms Relocates Headquarters to Boston’s South End District


BOSTON– Transwestern Consulting Group (TCG) announced that it has brokered a new 10,000-square-foot lease on behalf of Legacy Real Estate Ventures LLC at 46 Plympton St. in Boston.

TCG Partner Tom Ashe, along with Senior Vice Presidents Patrick Buckley and Jeff Landers, represented building ownership in the lease with Freight Farms.

“A distinctive building with charm and character, 46 Plympton St. has brick-and-beam construction that is typical of Boston’s South End,” said Buckley. “As lease rates continue to climb in areas like the Seaport District, Back Bay and Financial District, we’re seeing an increase in interest for other locations within the city, particularly from start-up and early-stage companies.”

Freight Farms designs and manufactures vertical hydroponic farms inside “up-cycled” freight containers that enable any business, individual or community to grow fresh produce year-round, regardless of climate or geography. The Boston-based company has deployed farms throughout the U.S., Canada, and Caribbean and has more recently expanded to the European Union and Dubai. Freight Farms is rapidly growing its team to support these new markets and has chosen to relocate its corporate headquarters from 840 Summer St. in Boston to the first and fourth floors of 46 Plympton St. Freight Farms was represented in the lease by Scott Richmond of Landmark Real Estate Advisors.

46 Plympton St., a five-story building encompassing 25,000 square feet of office space, is located near the Ink Block development, several hundred residential units under construction and the future site of the Boston Flower Exchange. Only 5,000 square feet remain available, encompassing the entire second floor.
