(Boston, February 22, 2007) – LAWFUEL – Law Firm News, Law Jobs – Ropes & Gray LLP announced today that it has signed a letter of intent to lease the top floors of the Prudential Tower, one of Boston’s premier locations. Ropes & Gray, the fourth-largest tenant in Boston, will occupy more than 400,000 square feet of office space in the Prudential Tower, owned and managed by Boston Properties, beginning in the fall of 2010.
“As was the case with our recent relocation of our New York office in Midtown Manhattan, we’re looking forward to moving to a dynamic new space that can accommodate our future growth,” said Brad Malt, chairman of Ropes & Gray. “Like Midtown, Back Bay offers an appealing mix of central location, cultural and recreational amenities, and convenience for our clients, attorneys and staff alike. International Place is a great building and has been a wonderful location for us since 1989, but we are excited by this development.”
The Prudential Center is a 3.2 million square foot urban center, comprised of 2.6 million square feet of office space and 620,000 square feet of retail space. The complex provides direct access to the Massachusetts Turnpike and on-site access to the MBTA Green Line, as well as the largest parking garage in New England, with space for 3,660 cars. The 52-story Prudential Tower features spectacular views of Boston, Cambridge and the surrounding areas. In 2006, Prudential Center was the recipient of the Urban Land Institute Award for Excellence as best mixed-use project on an international basis. Additionally, the Prudential Tower was the recipient of the 2006 BOMA Best Building of the Year Award.
