GE Begins Headquarters Relocation Process Soon

After 42 years at its Fairfield,Connecticut home,General Electric will begin moving to its new global headquarters in Boston later this month.Its executives will head for temporary offices on Farnsworth Street in the Fort Point Channel neighbourhood where the project will take shape;the bulk of the 800 headquarters staff will not arrive until 2018.Two extant brick buildings will be rehabilitated on the 2.4 acre site beginning later this year;while a new 12-storey building with 293,000 square feet of office space will be constructed there as well.A bridge and walkway will connect the three buildings.*
The new campus is to be a global epicenter of innovation,according to Ann R. Klee,GE head of Boston operations and development.Our headquarters is designed to engage and leverage the talent,technology and work ethic of Fort Point and greater Boston,while also giving back to the community through investment,rehabilitation and an inviting public space.GE expects our new headquarters will transform the existing unused site into a limb of technology,innovation and intellectual stimulation as well as become a new meaningful destination on the the city's Harbor Walk,Ms.Klee's statement said.*
The first floor and part of the second will feature a museum of GE's history and future.It will also offer a visitors' reception area and co-working space open to the public,plus a coffee bar.*
