Arrowstreet is the architect for the master plan and redevelopment of 530,000 square feet of space at Fidelity Investments’ former headquarters located in Post Office Square. This cluster of five office buildings in the Financial District, is being reimagined to energize the streetscape, transform the historic neighborhood and position this area as a dynamic destination in Boston. Working with Related Beal, CBRE and JLL, Arrowstreet’s design will re-brand the area and create 24/7 activities that are pedestrian friendly including a mix of residential, multi-level retail, offices and a boutique hotel. The transformation of these historically significant buildings will include a contemporary aesthetic and upscale, inviting public spaces. Two prominent features of the design include a new elevator core being built in a former light well enabling a more open format with expansive sightlines and a jewel box addition atop 40 Water Street offering 7 additional floors of office and amenity space including exterior green space that overlooks the city.
