BOSTON-Bank of New York Mellon is staying in its 20 floors of One Boston Pl., signing a long-term renewal for almost half of the class A office tower. The trophy building–also known as the BNY Mellon Center–is 41 floors encompassing 800,000 square feet. Mellon’s total square footage comes in at 362,293 square feet. Bank of New York Mellon chose to renew its lease early, as its current term was not set to expire.

The building, having earned a LEED EB: O&M Gold–a sustainability award for operation and maintenance–is owned and operated by a joint venture between TIAA-CREF and SITQ Immobilier. CB Richard Ellis is the exclusive leasing agent for the building.

The lease is a five-year extension of their current lease, which wasn’t set to expire until 2013. CBRE did not disclose the price per square foot, but GVA Thompson Hennesy & Partners Second Half 2009 Office Market Report shows that class A towers in the Financial District average a rate of $54.32 per square foot. Floor plates range from 19,500 square feet to 20,000 square feet. Other tenants in the third tallest tower in Boston are Boston Capital Partners, Robinson & Cole and Wells Fargo, among others.
