Well, now we know who to ask what GE’s new Seaport office will look like: Doug Gensler.
From the Boston Business Journal:
Some of Gensler’s notable local work includes the architecture for Boston Properties’ (NYSE: BXP) Hub on Causeway project, a 1.5 million-square-foot mixed-use project at North Station that will include a retail podium, office tower and hotel and residential tower. In the fall, a Gensler architect had created a rendering of the Hub on Causeway office with the logo “Plum” as the city of Boston was courting GE to relocate its headquarters using a code name “Project Plum.”
GE said in a statement that it “asked important and challenging questions about employee inspiration and teaming, environmental sustainability, and integration into the Boston innovation ecosystem” when considering architects. The headquarters must have a global scale and feel, GE said, while still remaining rooted in Boston.
