BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 10, 2014-- State Street Corporation (NYSE:STT) today announced the opening of its building at One Channel Center in Boston. The new building consists of workspace designed to support mobility and flexible work schedules, to promote operational and technological efficiency and to encourage collaboration among employees.

  • Enhanced ergonomic support at workstations which include stand-up desks and fitted chairs
  • Centralized trash, shredding, composting and recycling
  • 100 percent wireless to support mobility and flexible work schedules
  • Increased natural light in open space and white noise throughout the building
  • LEED certified design for environmental sustainability

“State Street is a leader in employment and sustainable corporate practices globally,” said Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “I am pleased that State Street has maintained its commitment to its headquarters in Boston, and has made a significant investment in the construction of a state of the art building on the growing South Boston Waterfront."

The Channel Center building has capacity for more than 3,500 employees to support State Street's mobile and flexible workforce. Ten percent of the Channel Center consists of unassigned workspaces with video and audio conferencing capabilities to encourage communication and idea sharing with virtual teams. The building is leased by State Street and was planned for in advance of the expiration of leases in four buildings in downtown Boston in 2014.
