Located on Route 128 between Route 2 and the Mass Pike, 200 Smith Street was once home to a U.S. Postal Service facility.
Anchor Line Partners purchased this 36-acre property in 2015 for $39.5 million and has since set out to create an office environment that’s like nothing else on the east coast, rebranding and revitalizing the property as POST.
ALP’s major capital campaign is transforming what had been a dark, cavernous warehouse into a light-filled, airy space that supports creativity and innovation. Design touches such as a 20-foot-wide deck with operable hangar doors, 15,000 sq. ft. courtyard and open floor plan featuring 38-foot ceilings have brought beauty and warmth to a previously cold industrial facility. The firm has also added about 50,000 sq. ft. of loft-style space, bringing the total area to 430,000 sq. ft.
With a modern layout and design, ultra-convenient location and amenities ranging from an indoor fitness center to on-site hiking trails and bike paths, POST will present an appealing package for high-growth employers in Greater Boston. ALP looks forward to completing the build-out and realizing the potential of this rejuvenated asset.
