Excerpted from the Boston Business Journal: KPMG celebrates 100 with move to Two Financial
Boston Business Journal - by Mary Moore
is celebrating in style as it prepares for a May 10 move-in date at Two Financial Center, where the tax, audit and advisory firm will occupy the second through sixth floors of the building and has a five-year option to lease all floors.
Make no mistake, Two Financial, which is 12 stories and a stone’s throw from South Station, is all about KPMG.
After 15 years, the company is leaving 99 High St., waving goodbye to its upper-floors’ water views and a lease that expires June 1. But that brings us to the sweet deal KPMG got right down the street. Who could refuse?
KPMG began negotiating the terms a year ago, taking the 96,000 square feet at KPMG’s big move puts a fine point on more than simply its anniversary in Boston.
Its total Boston staff is roughly 620.
Hiring is looking better, Canning said, and the firm’s goal is to go “vertical” in the building as soon as possible and exercise its option on floors seven through nine.
