CSN Stores will take six floors for roughly 48,000 square feet, while Carbonite will take two floors and Altus Marking and management LLC, Charity Partners Inc. and One Pica, Inc. will take one full floor, each.

The class A office space is well-located with easy access to the green line, specifically the E line. The Christian Science Plaza is a stone’s throw away from Copley Plaza and the Hines Convention Center, as well.
