Boston, MA – Representing one of the largest law firm relocations in the City of Boston since the beginning of the pandemic, Cushman & Wakefield, Washington Realty Group and Newmark announced today that One Boston Place secured Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati on a long-term, 40,975-square-foot lease for their new Boston offices. The law firm will be relocating from 28 State Street and will occupy the entire 19th and 20th floors of the iconic 41-story office tower.
“Boston is an important market for Wilson Sonsini and our continued focus on working with our many innovative life sciences and technology clients in the region—from entrepreneurs and emerging start-ups to larger companies and institutions,” said Doug Clark, managing partner, Wilson Sonsini. “We’ve grown since we first opened our Boston office and are excited about having a location and space for our attorneys and professional staff that allows them to thrive as they continue to collaborate with clients and each other as we move forward with our efforts to expand.”
John Boyle and Ryan Hurd of Cushman & Wakefield with Eric Berson of Washington Realty Group represented the tenant in the transaction. The landlord, Nuveen and Hines/Ivanhoe Cambridge, was represented by Jason Cameron and Gil Dailey of Newmark.
“We are thrilled to have helped find Wilson Sonsini their new home for their Boston offices at One Boston Place, one of our city’s premier trophy assets,” said Boyle. “This was a market-setting transaction and the law firm’s space will offer employees a best-in-class office experience with breathtaking views of the city, with great amenities in the building, while being conveniently located in the very heart of the Financial District right adjacent to State and Congress streets.”
One Boston Place is a Class A 41-story office tower featuring open office layouts. The asset’s amenities include a brand-new Wolfgang Steakhouse on the first floor, a Tatte Bakery and Café, a tenant-only fitness center, lounge, roof deck, indoor bike storage and a covered walkway to the connecting parking garage.
“The owners, Nuveen and Hines/Ivanhoe Cambridge, invested over $10 million in a complete renovation of the lobby, retail and amenities in the building. The work was completed just prior to the COVID shutdown. Wilson Sonsini’s decision to relocate their Boston office to One Boston Place validated the vision the owners had when they initiated the redesign and repositioning of the asset. We are so excited that such a great firm sees what we see and is joining our tenant roster,” added Cameron of Newmark.
The property is centrally located in the heart of the Financial District and within a half mile radius of all four MBTA Subway Lines providing direct access to the surrounding areas.
