It infuses the grandeur of the past with a dynamic, contemporary aesthetic, upscale amenities and inviting public spaces. Encompassing a full city block, Congress Square creates a unique urban campus that expresses the innovative energy of today's business.

Commerce and community

Originally built for Boston's legendary financial institutions, Congress Square is the former world headquarters of Fidelity Investments. It embraces the Boston spirit of entrepreneurship and stands ready to service the new economy.

The new Congress Square is for companies seeking creative and innovative space with superb amenities in a high energy Downtown location. Congress Square transforms an iconic business address into modern, efficient and dynamic offices. The five interconnected buildings at the corner of State and Congress will be completely restored and reconfigured, preserving the grandeur and quality of their classic architecture while re-imagining the interior offices for flexibility and collaboration.

There are more than 200,000 square feet of first class offices available as full or partial floors. With large, open floor plates and superior infrastructure, Congress Square provides tenants with power and efficiency.

Congress Square also offers the opportunity for green outdoor space that cannot be found in any other new office building in Boston. On the fifth floor, the existing roof at the setback will be re-used as an outdoor deck over- looking Post Office Square, either as an employee amenity or public space associated with client meeting and conference spaces. On the ninth floor, additional green roof and outdoor space will be created high above Congress Street that could serve as exceptional outdoor meeting space for executives.
