Cushman & Wakefield announced that it has represented the ownership of 53 State Street in four separate transactions. Press Ganey Associates, Aon, Institute for Healthcare Improvement and Experian Information Solutions will all relocate to 53 State Street in Boston and occupy a total of 103,562 square feet. These transactions represent the most new leasing in any Financial District property during the third quarter of 2017.

Standing 40 stories tall in Downtown Boston, 53 State Street is one of the city’s most recognizable properties. The building includes over 1.1 million square feet of office space, which is leased to some of the city’s most prominent businesses such as Hill Holliday, Boston Globe Media, SAP, Marcum and Morgan Stanley. Located in the hub of Downtown Boston, 53 State Street offers tenants an abundance of amenities including a newly constructed conference center, roof deck with sweeping views of the city, a fitness center and Squeeze Café. 53 State Street offers unparalleled access to Interstate 93, Logan Airport, the Mass Pike and Storrow Drive. Additionally, all four of the MBTA subway lines are within a short walking distance from the building. Not only is 53 State Street one of the most ideal locations for tenants, equidistant between North and South Station, but is also recognized for being one of the most energy efficient buildings in the city as evidenced by its LEED Platinum designation.

“These four leases demonstrate a strong commitment from the tenant community. It’s no secret that 53 State Street’s on-site amenities, led by its spectacular new 8,000 square foot roof deck, adjacent conference center and tenant-only fitness center, has created a buzz, making it one of the city’s most desired locations,” said Glenn Verrette, Cushman & Wakefield’s Executive Director.
