LevelUp, a mobile application allowing members to use their smartphones for payment at local businesses who accept this form of payment, launched its business in 2011. Initially this tech firm operated out of Cambridge, but after analysis of real estate costs, employee demographics and available locations, LevelUp decided to move their business to downtown Boston on Arch Street in December 2013.
This video showcases the space that they are now proud to call their own. LevelUp had the opportunity to occupy space in this prime location, but the space did not necessarily reflect their personality. With imagination and hard work, LevelUp has been able to transform the space from a former insurance office to a place reflective of their high-tech company’s culture.

JLL was proud to partner with LevelUp during their search process, from both a tenant representation standpoint as well as project management services for minor transformation ideas.
