West Hartford, Conn.-based blumshapiro, an IPA 100 firm, has moved its Boston office from One International Place to Two International Place, nearly tripling its office space downtown.
The new lease covers 9,995 square feet of office space on the 22nd floor of the Financial District skyscraper. Previously, blumshapiro subleased approximately 3,500 square feet on the 16th floor of neighboring One International Place. The OMP is Brian Renstrom.
The One International Place office marked the firm’s first Massachusetts location after expanding from Connecticut about nine years ago. Since then, blumshapiro has opened offices throughout the state in Quincy, Newton, North Andover and Worcester.
The expanded location was designed to better serve clients headquartered downtown while providing more convenience for employees who live there.
Although blumshapiro received its certificate of occupancy in late March, the space remained vacant until recently due to COVID-19 restrictions. The firm will adhere to the 50% occupancy guidelines and other protocols.
Under optimum conditions, the space is configured for about 50 to 60 people, with 35 individual workstations, 14 private offices and a 16-person conference room that overlooks Boston Harbor.
