BOSTON, February 13, 2012 — Pearlmark Real Estate Partners, L.L.C. (formerly Transwestern Investment Company) announces the lease of 24,764 square feet of first class office space to Public Consulting Group (PCG) at 40 Broad Street in downtown Boston. The space on the entire fourth floor is an expansion of PCG’s Boston presence. The 286,000-square-foot modern mid-rise office and retail tower is owned by Pearlmark.
Jones Lang LaSalle Senior Vice President Brad McGill, Executive Vice President Tom O’Regan, and Associate Kelly Lockberg negotiated on behalf of Pearlmark. Colliers Senior Vice President Leigh Freudenheim and Assistant Vice President Timothy O’Brien represented PCG. Occupancy is scheduled for March 2012.
Joseph Concepcion, Managing Director of Pearlmark, said: “With the completion of our significant capital improvements and modernization program, we continue to attract high quality tenants like PCG. We’re thrilled to have them as a tenant, and add them to our impressive roster.”
PCG’s Corporate Facilities Director Debbie Clark stated: “The building makes perfect sense for us. It gives us a central location in close proximity to our corporate headquarters at 148 State Street, in a vibrant neighborhood. 40 Broad Street supports our future growth plans here in Boston.” 
Located in the heart of the Financial District, 40 Broad Street overlooks the Rose Kennedy Greenway, a block from Faneuil Hall, the waterfront, and part of the city’s Crossroads Initiative. Recent renovations set the tone for the boutique mid-rise’s new image. Featured are new entries, a new main lobby with original art, and a complete redesign of the elevator cabs. The lobby is contemporary in design with wood and glass panels. There is also new stone flooring, and a much more open expansive lobby presence with seating areas and a repositioned front desk. Other tenants include Mullen Communications, Advent Software Inc., and Gesmer Updegrove.
According to Jones Lang LaSalle’s McGill: “PCG is a great tenant and a perfect fit for 40 Broad Street.” 40 Broad has just 19,000 square feet of contiguous space available at street level and on floor two.
The property manager for 40 Broad Street is Lincoln Property Company. Their senior property manager is Juanita Ortiz.
