Innovation District Continues to Explode with New Activity

51-Melcher-StreetBoston’s Innovation District continues to attract companies looking for space in a crowded market, and it’s not just for startups anymore. We were thrilled to help Boston-based lifestyle brand Life is good move into a 22,000-square-foot space in the heart of the Seaport at 51 Melcher St. The company will be joining other well-established companies like State Street Corp., and the law firm Goodwin Procter.

Last week, NAI Hunneman Vice President Dan Collins, who found Life is good its new home, told the Boston Globe, “This deal confirms that Fort Point is where the more recognizable companies in the city want to be. It’s always been an attractive area. It just needed a little momentum.”

Collins worked closely with Life is good over the course of 9 months to find a space that perfectly aligned with the company’s office culture. It sought a space that could be customized, while also offering the opportunity for elements like natural lighting that would help employees leave healthier than when they arrived in the morning. Life is good was also attracted to amenities including a close proximity to South Station and a bustling social environment.
