US: Converse sets sights on Boston HQ
Converse will relocate its corporate headquarters to Boston, Massachusetts in April 2015
The company has signed a long-term lease with co-developers Related Companies and Boston-based Beal Companies for commercial space in 160 North Washington Street.
The new headquarters will be renovated specifically for Converse to support its long-term business growth.
The existing building will be demolished and replaced with approximately three-quarters of an acre of publicly-accessible space as well as a 186,000 sq ft two-story building, which will be constructed and occupied by Converse.
"Converse was founded a few miles outside of Boston more than 100 years ago and we are honored to be part of this thriving business community and the city's well known cultural hub of innovation and creativity," said Converse president and CEO Jim Calhoun.
