We’ve all heard the excitement surrounding Boston’s Seaport District as the growing destination for companies of all types and sizes. With multiple development and expansion projects occurring there, it’s easy to forget there are other Boston neighborhoods undergoing significant changes.
The financial district’s Post Office Square neighborhood, for instance, is undergoing a serious facelift. With growing competition from the Seaport, this neighborhood is just one of many looking for new and exciting ways to attract tenants. Multiple buildings in and around the square are not only renovating their lobbies for a refreshed look and feel; but several are also planning dramatic changes to their exteriors in efforts to create a dynamic destination for tenants and visitors alike.
From 100 Federal Street’s recently completed new glass atrium, to LaSalle Investment Management’s proposed “building within a building” at 50 Post Office Square, to the redevelopment of Congress Square; these buildings are all looking for different ways to create a distinct experience for their tenants. One of the more notable projects in the neighborhood includes the complete transformation of One Post Office Square which is set to begin later this year.
As one of Boston’s most prominent downtown assets, One Post Office Square is dramatically revitalizing its building exterior as part of a $250 million office tower and garage modernization project. In efforts to make the tower more welcoming, the entire pre-cast concrete exterior is set to be replaced with a glass façade along with renovations to the building’s retail and office amenities. The new design is set to not only make the building appear more inviting, but also produce a beacon for the downtown Boston neighborhood.
