Suffolk to Build 10 World Trade in Seaport District

BOSTON, MA — Suffolk, a real estate and construction enterprise, will be responsible for managing construction of the 10 World Trade project in the Seaport District in Boston, Massachusetts. The 17-story 10 World Trade building will house 287,000 square feet of lab space, 258,000 square feet of office space, and two acres of sustainable landscaping, and will be the premier life sciences and office development in the city.

The 10 World Trade building, formerly known as 401 Congress Street or Parcel A2, will incorporate a design marked by efficient and flexible floorplates with views of the Boston skyline and harbor. The life science floors of the building will capitalize on the Seaport District’s tradition of innovation with a design and program that combine collaborative and cultural spaces. The building will also employ several design features and technology to enhance sustainability and wellness that meet the needs of modern tenants.

“We are thrilled to partner with this world-class development team, creative designers, and diverse partners on the sophisticated 10 World Trade life sciences and commercial development,” said Jeff Gouveia, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Suffolk Northeast. “We look forward to demonstrating our proven planning and construction approach and cutting-edge technologies on this important project for the future of our city.”  

In 2018, the Massachusetts Port Authority awarded the development designation to a joint venture consisting of BGI, The Cogsville Group, Bastion Companies, and EDGE. The development team was selected based on the project’s design, public realm contributions, and a comprehensive diversity and inclusion program. Suffolk was also a key member of the development team during the selection process and will be teaming with H.J. Russell & Company, a Black-owned construction services and real estate development firm. Sasaki was chosen as the architect.

Suffolk is committed to ensuring its diversity hiring compliance plans will be implemented and participation goals will be met or exceeded. Suffolk supports minority-, women-, and local-owned enterprises and disadvantaged businesses, and the company’s diversity hiring initiatives will be characterized by a proactive outreach program that provides equal access and opportunity for all qualified firms.

Suffolk will leverage its trade partner database, relationships with community organizations, contractual language, and accurate record-keeping to meet or exceed its established compliance goals. Suffolk’s collaboration with H.J. Russell will allow the minority-owned contractor to build capacity in the Greater Boston region and serve as a positive advocate and supporter of other diverse businesses in the local market.
