The Firm to take space in amenity-rich building on the water’s edge of Fort Point
The Boston office of Cresa, the world’s largest tenant-only commercial real estate firm, has chosen Atlantic Wharf, a mixed-use complex in Boston’s vibrant Waterfront District, for relocating their Boston office. Cresa will occupy 11,881 SF on the 10th floor of the building located at 280 Congress Street, after completion of an interior renovation expected by early-summer 2018. Currently located at 200 State Street, Cresa’s relocation to Atlantic Wharf moves the firm’s Boston office to an energetic building at the water’s edge of the rapidly expanding Fort Point Channel neighborhood.
“We enjoyed a great tenure at 200 State with numerous successes, and look forward to an exciting new chapter at Atlantic Wharf,” said Joseph Sciolla, managing principal at Cresa. “Our upcoming relocation coincides with our firm advancing and entering a new phase, and presents a significant possibility to allow our physical space to reflect that evolution. In addition, the upcoming move brings us closer to a hub of development and energy at an amenity-rich building that offers the conveniences we sought for our employees and clients.”
Framed by Boston Harbor and the Rose Kennedy Greenway, Atlantic Wharf is a mixed-use tower comprising residential, office, and retail spaces that bustles with urban waterfront activity. The building offers a multitude of shared meeting and event spaces, including a waterfront plaza with outside seating and an active and welcominglobby with additional exciting spaces for networking and collaborating. Other available conveniences include a variety of restaurants, public meeting spaces, and underground parking.
“Our relocation to Atlantic Wharf will bring us closer to Boston’s bustling Innovation District and Fort Point Channel,” said Adam Subber, managing principal at Cresa Boston. “In addition, we are excited by the chance to implement many of the design features our clients employ, such as accentuating the high ceilings and expansive glass, leveraging more collaborative options and enhancing gathering and meeting spaces.The existing office space boasts an open perimeter to welcome an abundance of natural light and offerspectacular views along with interior glass-fronted offices and conference rooms, allowing us to showcase the very assets we advise our clients on but in an environmentally responsible manner with minimal construction required.”
Situated on the corner of Congress Street and Atlantic Avenue, Atlantic Wharf offers convenient access to public transit and downtown Boston as well as the recreational and cultural attractions of the Greenway. The LEED Platinum-certified building earned the distinction as Boston’s first sustainable high-rise when it was completed in 2011. Atlantic Wharf is owned by Boston Properties.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Cresa Boston to Atlantic Wharf and are honored they selected Boston’s first green skyscraper for their new home,” said Bryan Koop, executive vice president, Boston region at Boston Properties. “Their focus on using Atlantic Wharf as a workshop to showcase and implement design innovations to their clients is a great fit for the building and the neighborhood.”
