Winthrop Center, a 1.45 MSF mixed-use development located in the heat of downtown Boston, will be the largest Passive House office project in the world. The office component of the project will consist of 812,000 SF of premier office space across floors 6-26. Each of the +/- 38,000 SF office floors will feature 12’ floor-to-ceiling clear heights, 10’ high glass throughout, a 350 SF private outdoor terrace, extraordinary views of Boston and Cambridge, and will allow for 95% of seats to be within 35’ of a window.
Winthrop Center will be anchored by a multi-floor gathering space and thruway, known as “The Connector,” that will host several exciting amenity-based retailers, including a full-service public restaurant, coffee shop, grab and go food options along with casual seating areas and a programable media art wall. The Connector has the capabilities to be converted to a multi-purpose event space in off-hours, providing the opportunity to host company functions and events. In addition to this one-of-a-kind amenity, the project will also feature a 23,000 sq. ft. exclusive tenant amenity center, “The Collective,” that will include wellness programs, fitness facilities, mediation rooms, spa-like locker rooms, as well as food and beverage services throughout the day into the evening. The Collective, will also include several third spaces for occupants to work and collaborate. These third spaces range from shared library desks, lecture spaces, casual soft seating areas and fully equipped conference rooms outfitted with privacy screens and the most forward-thinking technology available.
Finally, through Passive House, Winthrop Center will be one of the healthiest and greenest building in the world, transcending LEED Platinum by double to meet the most rigorous global standards for energy and efficiency. Winthrop's Well Gold certification will ensure rigorous air (30% to 50% more fresh air than comparable buildings delivered to each office floor) and water monitoring in a workplace designed to infuse optimal health, wellness, fitness and nutrition benefits holistically into their daily lives. Wired Platinum certification means Winthrop Center will meet the highest standards for digital infrastructure connectivity, redundancy and resiliency. Smart System technology and Winthrop's proprietary connexIQ employee ecosystem will ensure that every aspect of the built environment serves employees at the highest level.
