CommonWealth Partners Acquires Pier 4 Office Building in Boston’s Seaport District for $450M
BOSTON — CommonWealth Partners has acquired the Pier 4 office building in Boston’s seaport district from developer Tishman Speyer for $450 million. The 372,372-square-foot property sold for $1,208 per square foot, the highest ever for a Boston office property, according to Tishman Speyer.
Located at 200 Pier 4 Blvd., the building was designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects of Boston and completed in May 2018. Pier 4 currently serves as the global headquarters for the Boston Consulting Group, educational content and technology services company Cengage Learning, and equity manager Man Numeric.
“From the beginning, the Pier 4 site presented Tishman Speyer with a unique opportunity to create Boston’s finest modern mixed-use development,” says Jessica Hughes, managing director of Tishman Speyer. “We thank the City of Boston, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the very dedicated waterfront community for sharing our vision for this property and working with us to bring that vision to full realization.”
Amenities at Pier 4 include harbor views, a roof terrace, fitness center, bicycle storage and three levels of parking. Tishman Speyer is currently developing the final phases of the Pier 4 project, which will include a nine-story condominium building and one-acre public waterfront park.
The Pier 4 building was constructed on the site of Anthony’s Pier 4 waterfront restaurant, which closed in 2013.
