Client Objectives

  • Engaged Cresa to explore renewing in Kendall Square versus relocating to Boston
  • Focused on Boston submarkets, given record setting rents in Kendall
  • Desired proximity to public transit, diverse amenities and building character to reflect business values


  • Leveraged ARC’s desirable tenancy, competing with organic demand and an influx of blue chip technology tenants
  • Orchestrated a process to ensure maximum leverage, with an option to renew at ARC’s disposal
  • Secured a long-term base for ARC in Boston’s Back Bay and a new facility that allows the firm to reflect its brand and culture
  • Negotiated early termination with former landlord which yielded additional 4 months of free rent (leveraged Google’s demand for space)
