Project Description

  • With a curvilinear exterior and tiered set-backs, this new 17-story building establishes a uniquely elegant presence on Fan Pier— a distinctive glass façade configured in a pattern of contrasting angles, accentuating the building’s curvature and harmonizing with the waterfront neighborhood.
  • The interior provides human-centered design for nearly 1,000 associates in an activity-based work environment (ABW) with flexible, inclusive work areas that are fully supportive of employee health and wellness.
  • The building features a series of employee-focused amenities, including two outdoor terraces; a café serving healthy, freshly prepared food options; a barista bar; and a large, multipurpose collaboration and training space.
  • Spaces are organized around neighborhoods, which offer a robust variety of space and furniture types ranging from acoustically private to open collaboration areas.
  • This building has achieved LEED Platinum certification and employs strategies to cope with rising sea levels.
