Cengage to relocate headquarters to nearly fully leased Pier 4 office building in Seaport District
Global education and technology company Cengage will relocate its’ headquarters to 117,000 square feet at Pier 4, a mixed-use Seaport District development overlooking Boston Harbor opening this Fall. Cengage’s office will be located across the second through sixth floors of Pier 4’s 13-story, 373,000-square-foot office building, with a private outdoor terrace on the fourth floor.
Cengage, who is currently located in Fort Point’s Channel Center, has leased its’ new space for 10 years and will move its’ 500 Boston-based employees to Pier 4 this Fall. The company is the United States’ largest provider of higher education teaching and learning materials, and is currently seeking to hire nearly 100 people to sustain its’ rapid transformation from a print company to a fully digital company. “Cengage has experienced significant growth since moving our headquarters to Boston in 2014,” said Cengage Chief Technology Officer George Moore in a prepared statement. “The region’s pool of the best and brightest tech talent has enabled our company to embrace new innovations that support students. The amenities, dynamic nature of the [Seaport] neighborhood and unobstructed views of the Boston Harbor will fuel our momentum, while inspiring current and future employees to think big, embrace the unknown and accelerate new ways of learning.”
With Cengage’s lease, the Pier 4 office building is nearly fully leased. The building will be anchored by Boston Consulting Group, who will open a new 202,000-square-foot headquarters across the top seven floors. In total, the building features 353,000 square feet of office space and 20,000 square feet of retail. Amenities will include a state-of-the art fitness center, bicycle storage and three levels of parking, with a new public Harborwalk and one-acre waterfront park. The $500 million Pier 4 will also feature a nine-story condominium building with 106 residences now on sale and 17,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.
Farm-to-table waterfront restaurant opening at Pier 4 condominium building in Seaport District, new project renderings revealed
The Seaport District’s first farm-to-table restaurant will open on the ground floor of the upcoming Pier 4 waterfront condominium building. The restaurant will be operated by Kristin Canty, owner of organic, farm-to-table Concord, MA restaurant Woods Hill Table, and will have 140 seats, including a raw bar, along with a 40-seat patio. Like Woods Hill Table, food will be sourced directly from The Farm at Woods Hill, Canty’s Bath, New Hampshire-based farm. Canty hopes to decorate the restaurant, which has yet to be named, with items sourced from the former Anthony’s Pier 4 restaurant, which closed in 2015 and was demolished in 2016 to make way for the condominium building.
The $500 million Pier 4 development, which is expected to open in Fall 2018, will feature two buildings with sweeping views of the Boston skyline and Boston Harbor. The nine-story condominium building will feature 106 residences now on sale and 17,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.
