Boston’s new home for progressive nonprofits opens in “green” building
19 Oct 2004
Boston, Mass. – Boston-based Third Sector New England announces the opening of the region’s first multi-tenant nonprofit center in historic Lincoln Plaza (89 South Street) in Boston’s Leather District. Third Sector New England developed the center to fulfill a decade-long vision to create a shared office space to house and nurture progressive social change organizations.
Boston’s new NonProfit Center will provide progressive social change organizations with secure, affordable rents that are stable and predictable while creating an environment that fosters nonprofit collaboration. TSNE developed the NonProfit Center in direct response to the growing need of nonprofits for affordable, secure office, meeting and training space.

In developing The NonProfit Center of Boston TSNE made the environmental sustainability of the building and the quality of work environments a top priority. The NonProfit Center reuses an existing building so new land was not developed and construction expended minimal resources. Public transportation is easily accessible and the building includes bicycle storage, showers and pedestrian-friendly access. The NonProfit Center’s sustainable building design contributes to reduced environmental impact by conserving energy, decreasing air pollution emissions, and wisely using water and natural energy sources. The building was renovated using renewable, sustainably harvested, and/or recycled materials.

"This is an exciting, tangible step forward for our city as we continue to make strides in our efforts to promote green building initiatives in Boston," says Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino. "We are thinking boldly about energy efficiency, conservation, smart growth and job creation. We understand that the future of development lies with a new approach to building and we see the opportunities to create new businesses and new jobs while building a better, healthier more sustainable Boston."

Itself a private, not-for-profit organization, Third Sector New England offers programs, services and information to help fellow nonprofits strengthen their programs, management systems and ability to adapt to changing societal needs. TSNE also promotes wider recognition of the role of nonprofit organizations in creating a more just and democratic society.
