Boston—Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announced the relocation of Slalom to 399 Boylston Street in Boston.
NKF Senior Managing Directors Jason Cameron and Jim Brady of the firm’s Boston office, in cooperation with Senior Managing Director Daniel Levine of the firm’s New York office, represented Slalom in the 30,075-square-foot lease. The firm is combining offices and relocating from its two Boston locations at 181 Newbury Street and 312 Stuart Street.
Founded in 2001, Slalom is a business and technology consulting firm headquartered in Seattle, Washington. The company employs more than 5,000 people across 25 offices in North America and the United Kingdom.
Slalom was recently named on the 2018 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For List, which is the firm’s third consecutive year being included. With a desire to consolidate two locations into one, Slalom selected NKF to assist with its site selection analysis, ultimately choosing 399 Boylston Street based on its Back Bay location. The firm will take occupancy of its new space in July 2018.
“We are pleased to have assisted Slalom in this office relocation, allowing them to combine two offices under one roof,” said Cameron. “With its location, upgraded lobby, amenities and new retail, 399 Boylston is a great location to attract and retain top industry talent, as well as work in a collaborative environment with a fresh new look and feel.”
399 Boylston Street is a Class A, 251,328-square-foot, 13-story office building. Centrally located in Boston’s Back Bay, the property features an abundance of natural light and outstanding views of the Boston skyline, Public Garden, Boston Common and the Charles River.
Ownership, The Blackstone Group LP / Equity Office Properties, recently completed renovations to the building’s lobby which included a new glass façade, bike storage, a fitness center, lockers and showers, as well as updates to the retail area. 399 Boylston is within minutes from the Arlington Street MBTA Station, Storrow Drive, I-93, the Mass Pike (I-90) and Logan
International Airport. Additionally, the property is within steps of the Taj Hotel, the Four Seasons Hotel and a variety of restaurants and high-end residential developments.
