Springfield, MA- Fuss & O’Neill, an award-winning New England engineering firm, is moving from its West Springfield office into 11,133 square feet of leased space at 1550 Main in the heart of the arts and innovation district in downtown Springfield.
“We are thrilled to be moving to Springfield,” says Eric Bernardin, Fuss & O’Neill. “As an engineering firm, our job is to help create an environment that promotes and provides the groundwork for economic opportunity, civic involvement and arts and entertainment. We are excited to be part of helping Springfield grow and look forward to the future.”
1550 Main is owned by MassDevelopment, Massachusetts’ quasi-public finance and economic development authority. The Agency purchased the property, a former federal office building located at 1550 Main Street, in 2009, and has since invested more than $11 million to transform it into a vibrant commercial property with improved public spaces, updated interiors and exteriors, and a robust listing of job and revenue-generating tenants. 1550 Main is home to a variety of public and private entities, including the Springfield School Department, Baystate Health, and the General Services Administration.
“MassDevelopment’s mission is to stimulate business development and drive economic growth across the Commonwealth. At 1550 Main, we are accomplishing that goal by attracting cutting-edge companies and organizations that will bring jobs and increased activity to Springfield,” said MassDevelopment President and CEO Lauren Liss. “We are pleased that 1550 Main is now fully tenanted with Fuss & O’Neill’s move to the building, and welcome the firm to the city’s downtown.”
Springfield Mayor Domenic J. Sarno is thrilled about this move. “Happy to have this well-respected firm moving into downtown Springfield. This continues my administration’s economic development efforts to attract new businesses into our city,” said Springfield Mayor Domenic J. Sarno. “Word is out there that Springfield is a good place to do business. I appreciate Fuss & O’Neill’s belief and investment in our Springfield.”
Chief Development Officer Kevin E. Kennedy said, “Fuss and O’Neill has provided expert advice on a continuing basis to the City throughout the MGM development process. They have been a great partner. We are pleased that they will part of a new Downtown Springfield.”
