About the Case Study

699 Boylston Street is a highly visible and distinct building in Boston’s Back Bay. Formerly known as One Exeter Plaza, AEW Capital Management purchased the building and committed to repositioning it to retain key tenants and attract new, specifically targeted tenants. The first three floors of 699 were redesigned to create a more efficient lobby, enlarged retail spaces with contemporary façades of floor to ceiling glass, and extensive street level improvements to increase the value of the property in its prime location.
