The building’s anchor tenant, accounting firm Citrin Corporation, will leave the 130,000-square-foot space that it occupies next fall. Silverstein worked with Architecture Plus Information on a $20 million renovation to parts of the building, adding an amenity floor (with a gym and shower) as well as a 500-square-foot terrace to attract new tenants.

Silverstein also plans to update 12,600 square feet of ground floor retail space currently occupied by Best Buy after the store’s lease expires at the end of 2021.
