Burlington-Based Nordblom Company Purchased Former Boston Globe Building


A Burlington-based development company has purchased the former home of the Boston Globe.


Nordblom Company, in partnership with Alcion Ventures, announced today that they have purchased 135 Morrissey Boulevard, a 700,000 square-foot building on 16.5 acres in Boston. The Globe left the Morrissey Boulevard building in June to move to State Street in Boston.

“We’re excited about our purchase of 135 Morrissey Boulevard, the latest addition to our Boston portfolio,” said Og Hunnewell, Partner of Nordblom Company. “We look forward to working closely with our neighbors and the BPDA, to bring to life our vision of an urban innovation campus - where Boston’s businesses think bigger, act bolder, and move Boston’s ‘next’ economy forward.”


135 Morrissey Boulevard enjoys near-adjacency to the MBTA’s Red Line JFK/UMass station, and abuts Interstate 93, providing excellent highway access and visibility, the release states.


“First constructed by The Boston Globe in 1958, the property is an enduring icon in this exciting neighborhood of Boston,” the release states.
