Dorchester, MA – Lee Kennedy Co. (LKCO) announced it recently started construction on an 86,000sf fit-out of NOBULL’s new headquarters at The BEAT on Morrissey Boulevard in Dorchester.
NOBULL will be one of the first major tenants in the redeveloped industrial-style building that once housed The Boston Globe until 2017. It will be among life science, medical, and high-tech companies expected to occupy the building.
NOBULL has tripled in size over the last two years, making a new office space necessary. Designed by Studio Luz Architects, the space will include workout and studio areas, locker rooms, a sauna, plunge pools, and a rock-climbing wall. The company wanted to keep the space collaborative but also encourage employees to stay active, so a track was designed that weaves through the office and ideates a world where meetings will be taken on foot.
Spaces for digital content production were also prioritized including a photography studio and recording office for the Boston-based sportswear brand’s co-founders Michael Schaeffer and Marcus Wilson’s podcast, Behind the Horns. An “experiential” retail and outdoor space are in the plans for spring 2023 once the initial build-out is complete.
“We are excited to begin the work on NOBULL’s headquarters at The BEAT. Their innovation and creativity into their new office is a perfect fit for the diversification of LKCO’s Interiors/Special Projects sector,” said Scott Giles, vice president – interiors/special projects. “We are looking forward to providing an inventive space for NOBULL to continue to expand and grow their business.”
