Stagnant job growth in the legal and financial services over the past three years has been offset by the rise of Boston’s high tech industry. That sector is displaying cumulative growth of 22 percent.
This dynamic is changing the face of the Boston office market.
The Seaport remains a top business destination for VC-backed firms. The Financial District has been a magnet for high tech firms.
Tech incubators are expanding throughout the city. One recent example is WeWork. The shared office network is moving here to occupy a combined 70,000 square feet in South Station and the Seaport.
