BOSTON–Newmark announces the sale of 855 Boylston Street, a mid-rise office/retail asset located in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston.
Newmark Co-Head of U.S. Capital Markets Robert Griffin, Executive Vice Chairman Edward Maher, Vice Chairman Matthew Pullen and Senior Managing Director Samantha Hallowell of the firm’s Boston Capital Markets Group represented the seller, a global investment manager, and procured the offshore buyer, 855 Boylston Inc. The transaction is the largest office sale completed in Boston’s Back Bay in more than three years*.
Totaling 142,765 square feet across 11 stories, 855 Boylston Street is 100% leased to a diverse roster of 13 tenants. The asset features an updated lobby and glass curtainwall, multiple outdoor terraces and 32 below-grade parking spaces.
“855 Boylston Street is part of an exclusive competitive set that consistently outperforms the overall Back Bay submarket,” said Hallowell. “This transaction represents the first time that this high-performing asset has changed ownership in nearly a quarter-century.”
In November 2022, 855 Boylston Street was recognized by the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) Boston and won a coveted The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) award in the 100,000- to 250,000-square-foot building category.
