Looking for open-concept office space where you can coexist among like-minded innovators? You’ll find it at 1 Design Center Place in Boston. The complex is home to a dynamic mix of influential companies and industries such as creative service studios, specialized manufacturing facilities, research and development firms, architecture, and tech startups.

Sandwiched between a cruise ship terminal and dry dock, the building is eight stories and offers outstanding views of the Boston Harbor. Amid the expansive floor plans, 16-foot ceilings and natural light-filled spaces, the building’s interconnected environment encourages an open exchange of ideas and information.

The building used to serve as a waterside warehouse for the South Boston Army Base and the Naval Annex where thousands of workers performed manual labor on warships. The once massive warehouse reclassified most of its industrial and vacant space for commercial use and now houses more than 200 businesses on-site. Designers, creatives, researchers, engineers and urban dwellers have reinvigorated the landmark with a sense of liveliness — about 3,400 employees work in the complex each day to make their mark on the world.

Public transportation options are plentiful in this location. The building is right by the MBTA Silver Line. Plus, it’s close to South Station and Boston’s Logan International Airport. The Innovation and Design Building boasts multiple freight elevators, floor-to-ceiling windows, showroom space featuring luxury furnishings, more than 300 indoor bike racks, a full-service kitchen, and numerous food vendors that offer breakfast and lunch options. If you’re seeking a home base for your business in Boston, this hub is the hotspot for fueling today’s economy.
