BOSTON-Pembroke Real Estate Inc. officially took the wraps off its 504,000-sf World Trade Center East project last night, with its grand opening celebration. But the asset, touted as the first new office building delivered here since Two International Place opened in 1992, is already 90% leased, according to Pembroke managing director Peter E. Madsen. Included in the roster of tenants who have been lured to the new property from the heart of Downtown are AEW Capital Management, Cabot Corp. and the Foley Hoag law firm.

In addition to the newly launched WTC East, the World Trade Center complex encompasses the World Trade Center Boston, Commonwealth Pier and the 427-room Seaport Hotel. WTC East, a co-development of Pembroke and the Drew Co., delivers approximately 33,000 rentable sf per floor. Spaulding & Slye is the leasing broker.

According to Madsen, the new asset is actually the first of two office towers that will occupy the center. The next is slated for a June ’02 delivery.
