This confidential global law firm has more than 600 attorneys working out of offices across the U.S., Europe and Asia, the largest of which is in Boston. Structure Tone was proud to be a part of the project team, working alongside Gensler, Newmark Knight Frank, and Vanderweil Engineers to complete this new office space project at Exchange Place – 53 State Street, in the heart of Boston’s financial district. The client’s former Boston office consisted of 167,000sf at 100 Summer Street. Their new home takes up 115,000sf across five floors which continues a trend of modern law firms downsizing.
The new space houses approximately 300 employees. It consists of a more open office environment with flexible team-oriented workspaces and original artwork from under-resourced youth, adults with disabilities, and people experiencing homelessness in the Boston area.
The scope of work encompassed exterior and interior private offices, open plan areas, conference rooms, team rooms, phone rooms, copy/print areas, case rooms, wellness rooms, storage rooms, IDFs, pantries, a library, business/event center and a full private kitchen. The project also included a stacked internal staircase interconnecting the five floors. The client is seeking LEED Gold or better.
