The developers secured financing for the $410 million project from J.P. Morgan Chase, M&T Bank Corp. and U.S. Bank, the Wall Street Journal reported. Rudin TRData LogoTINY and Boston Properties broke ground on the 16-story building at 652 Kent Avenue last year.

The 675,000-square-foot building will be anchored by WeWork, which agreed to lease 222,000 square feet. Asking rents in the 17-story building will be between $60 and $70 per square foot, Rudin Management vice president Michael Rudin previously said.
