Following all the necessary project approvals, HubSpot has committed to moving the company’s Portsmouth office to the Thomas J. McIntyre Federal Building downtown, according to a statement from Redgate-Kane.
Once the project successfully completes the Portsmouth City Council, National Park Service and permitting processes, HubSpot will occupy the majority of the office space and become the anchor tenant at the McIntyre site. HubSpot cited the McIntyre project’s ideal urban design, public space and lifestyle amenities that benefit Portsmouth residents and businesses as key factors in its decision.
The Redgate-Kane team has been working with the community, the city of Portsmouth and all stakeholders over the past year to put forth the very best proposal for the McIntyre site that meets National Park Service requirements, according to the statement.
The project will feature significant open space (44 percent of the site with three new outdoor public spaces), a large central plaza and four-season indoor community gathering space, a market for local food and beverage vendors, a space for the U.S. Postal Service, and potential retail lifestyle amenities such as a fitness center, grocer or brewery – all of which will be handicap accessible and were prioritized during last year’s public input meetings.
The Redgate-Kane development team has participated in more than 35 public meetings on the McIntyre project over the past year, and incorporated extensive feedback from residents and business and community leaders into the design. In January, the team unveiled a 3D model of the proposed project to showcase the vision for the future of the McIntyre site.
