BOSTON-Eaton Vance Corp. has changed its headquarters, moving into Two International Pl. after a 10-floor, interior build-out by Jones Lang LaSalle. The roughly 300,000-square-foot office will consolidate Eaton’s local offices.

Eaton Vance is already moved in from its original headquarters and is in the process of bringing the rest of its local presence–currently at 200 State St.–into the newly renovated HQ. The consolidation will bring approximately 800 employees in Downtown Boston locales into the building creating a new world headquarters for Eaton. The company at final move-in will dominate just under half of this class A building. Two International is one of five buildings in its complex, which borders Rowes Wharf at the Boston Harbor.

The revamp entailed interactive meeting and conference rooms, a café, kitchen, training facility, a “landscaped terrace” on the roof and energy efficient lighting fixtures. Eaton had worked in this build-out as part of its 15-year lease, which it signed with the building in 2006. The financial terms of the lease were not revealed, but the average asking rate for CBD office here, according to Cushman & Wakefield, currently stands at $56.29 per square foot. In a statement, SVP at JLL Alfred Woods says, “This assignment is a perfect example of our platform in action. By engaging PDS and leasing collaboratively, we added value for a terrific, long-standing client.”

JLL’s Project and Development Services team consisted of Wood and Stephen Senna. Former JLL members Bill Motley and Debra Gould worked out the lease negotiations back in ’06 where the Eaton Vance deal won the “Office Deal of the Year in Downtown Boston” from the Commercial Brokers Association.
