BOSTON– Cushman & Wakefield announceD that Living Proof, a company solving haircare’s biggest challenges with science and patented technology, is moving to the Seaport District’s One Design Center.

The Innovation and Design Building (IDB) is a 1.4 million square foot mixed-use complex located in the Innovation District in Boston’s Seaport neighborhood. The complex is home to the Boston Design Center, New England’s premier resource for design professionals, with showrooms featuring over 1,200 luxury product lines of fabric, furniture, lighting, antiques, fine art, wall and floor coverings, kitchen and bath components, and contract services. The eight-story structure was constructed in 1918 and originally served as a waterside storehouse for the South Boston Army Base. The complex is conveniently located along the MBTA Silver Line route, just minutes from South Station.
Living Proof’s decision to relocate to the Seaport District illustrates how life sciences and pharmaceutical companies are thriving beyond Cambridge. The company’s new location is in the heart of the fastest growing part of Boston that has stimulated significant economic growth in the city.
