An investment fund run by the real estate firm Related Beal struck a New Year’s Eve deal with Fidelity Investments to purchase five buildings in downtown Boston that once served as the business epicenter of the giant financial services firm.
The buildings, near Post Office Square, contain 343,000 square feet of office and retail space spread across more than an acre of prime real estate known as the Block on Congress.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Adam Banker, a spokesman for Fidelity, said the company put the block up for sale in March.
One of the buildings, at 82 Devonshire St., served as Fidelity’s Boston headquarters from 1976 until the company moved to 245 Summer St. last year. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
