ValueOptions Inc., a wellness company that employers hire to help motivate their workforces to get and stay healthy, has signed a lease for nearly 40,000 square feet of space at 1000 Washington St., an 11-story Boston office building with about 242,000 square feet of space.
ValueOptions plans to use the new space as its regional headquarters after consolidating several area offices, CBRE/New England said.
According to the firm’s press release, this part of the city is poised for big changes.
Near 1000 Washington St., the old Boston Herald headquarters site in the South End is being redeveloped into a $200 million apartment-and-retail complex that will include a Whole Foods supermarket, CBRE/New England said; another $145 million project at 275 Albany St. is envisioned as two buildings with 400 residential units.
In a statement, Nordblom partner Og Hunnewell said: “We are delighted that ValueOptions has joined our strong group of long-term tenants occupying this exciting property. They are representative of the growth companies whom we have been relocating to this property.’’
