BOSTON-A new One Post Office Square is emerging Downtown. The most visible change, the building façade has shed its traditional skin for a modern and timeless look, floor-to-ceiling glass which will soon to be an iconic beacon of the City’s skyline.
Co-developed by Anchor Line Partners and JLL, One Post OfficeSquare is being meticulously re-designed from the outside in, transforming the user experience with modern, people-first amenities and highly efficient workspaces along with sustainable mechanical systems in place for future adaptability. Tenants at One Post Office Square will benefit from a deliberate blend of convenience and function through an array of elevated amenities, including the innovative automated parking garage, state-of-the-art fitness center, new food and beverage offerings, and an outdoor lounge.
Signalizing a long-term partnership for future success, four tenants have signed leases at One Post Office Square, including law firm Sullivan & Worcester, financial services firm Appleton Partners, commercial real estate services firm JLL and leading global bank, Citi, all totaling approximately 185,000 square feet.
“During these transformative times it is imperative for building owners to anticipate the needs of tenants and their employees. One Post Office Square is meeting the challenge to grow and evolve with them,” said Ben Heller, Executive Managing Director, JLL. “This is an extraordinary opportunity to transform an existing tower to meet the needs of tomorrow’s tenant base and we will continue to do our part in making Boston’s Financial District the business hub it is and has always been.”
While many downtown offices are considering how the current climate impacts their spaces, One Post Office Square is already positioned to align with LEED certified standards offering superior air quality and private and communal outdoor spaces along with high performance sustainable initiatives when it delivers in 2021. Expanded windows and communal outdoor spaces have been thoughtfully designed to make connections to the outdoors and fresh air to enhance wellness and productivity.
While much of the Financial District has been at a standstill, 2020 was a very busy time at One Post Office Square, and the momentum continues into the New Year. The demolition of the existing garage and lantern system is complete, along with the curtain wall on floors 4-19. In 2021, the next stage of the transformation of the façade on floors 31-38 will begin.
