Back Bay continues its foothold as strongest office market in New England.  The Boston Marathon and Duck Tour Parade route will pass Boston Properties’ newest landmark tower, 888 Boylston Street which is schedule to start construction in Spring of 2014.

According to The Real Reporter, “Prudential Center owner Boston Properties has an office tenant in tow that would enable the proposed 17-story, 442,000-sf building to proceed. Market sources claim Natixis Global Asset Management, a French conglomerate that owns homegrown Copley Real Estate Advisors, is negotiating for an estimated 115,000 sf to facilitate a relocation from its 399 Boylston St. home a few blocks east on the opposite side of the Back Bay boulevard.”
