Boston – On behalf of KS Partners and Oaktree Capital, CBRE/New England announced that Enel Green Power North America, Inc. (EGP-NA) has selected Andover Landing at Brickstone for their new North American headquarters location. The firm has leased 66,000 square feet of space.

Their parent company, Enel Group, is a multinational power company headquartered in Rome, Italy.
“We are thrilled to find a location that embodies our company’s vision for an innovative and collaborative workspace,” said Rafael Gonzalez, Head of Enel Green Power North America, Inc. “This new space will meet our company’s growing needs while also providing our employees with a modern, open, sustainable and smart work environment.

KS Partners and Oaktree have committed to several improvements for the property, spanning over one million SF, which include specific changes catered to the needs of their newest tenant commitment. The capital project will feature a new point of entry for EGP-NA, transforming the façade of 100 Brickstone Square in its entirety. Other amenity enhancements include a renovated full-service cafeteria, complete with separate game room, flexible conference facilities (for up to 100 people), a coffee/juice bar, a brand new fitness center with yoga room, shower & locker facilities, a Bright Horizons Day Care facility, outdoor seating, on-site property management and plentiful parking.
“We are very pleased that our significant investment in Andover Landing at Brickstone has led to welcoming the new Enel Green Power North America headquarters,” noted Kambiz Shahbazi, President and Founder of KS Partners. “Over the past 18 months we have transformed the park into a destination campus with amenities, modern finishes, and a vibrant environment to assist companies with recruiting and retaining talent. We wish EGP-NA great success in our business friendly environment and their new space.”
