Natixis Global Asset Management relocates Boston HQ to 888 Boylston
Natixis Global Asset Management is relocating its US corporate headquarters to 888 Boylston Street in Boston as the anchor tenant in a new office building being developed by Boston Properties.
Natixis will occupy approximately 128,000 square feet in five storeys with the option to expand onto a sixth floor. Construction of Natixis’ space is scheduled for completion in fall 2017.
"We are thrilled to be a part of this exciting project for the City of Boston and the region’s economy," says John Hailer, president and CEO of Natixis Global Asset Management, Asia and the Americas. "Boston has always provided an excellent home for Natixis, and we feel fortunate to be able to grow and further expand in this great city."
The 17-storey, 425,000-square-foot 888 Boylston Street is designed to be Boston’s most sustainable office building, using 45 per cent less energy and 37 per cent less potable water than an average office building. Customers at 888 Boylston can leave the lights off 60 per cent of the time, as the building features daylight penetration to 95 per cent of the floor area. Designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council, additional sustainable features include a chilled beam HVAC system, on-site rooftop wind power generation that will power all exterior building and plaza lighting, and a rain harvesting and reuse system.
“The Prudential Center has helped define the skyline of Boston for more than half a century, and 888 Boylston Street represents a new definition in sustainable building design,” says Bryan Koop, Boston Properties senior vice president and regional manager. “Natixis Global Asset Management has been an important corporate presence in the Back Bay for many years, and we are honoured to have them as the lead customer at this exciting project.”
