100 Cambridge Street, Boston
In 1999, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts shuttered the Leverett A. Saltonstall state office building and selected MassDevelopment to redevelop the contaminated property, located on a bleak windswept plaza at the corner of Cambridge and Bowdoin streets in downtown Boston. Rebranded as “100 Cambridge Street,” the award-winning 565,000 SF property is now a model for public-private partnership, and a bustling example of mixed-use, transit-oriented development. Serving as project developer, MassDevelopment coordinated the remediation, redevelopment, and re-tenanting efforts at the site. Today, 100 Cambridge Street’s 22-story office tower is fully leased with a mix of public and private tenants. The redevelopment effort also resulted in the construction of 75 new residential condominium units of which 25 percent were sold at affordable rates. The complex also includes nearly 35,000 square feet of retail space, all of which is currently leased, as well as green space, a memorial to victims of homicide, and a public art gallery showcasing works by Sol Lewitt, the students of Artists for Humanity, and architect Howard Elkus. In March 2011, the building received a LEED® O&M Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council®.
