Global comfort footwear brand Clarks will break ground on new corporate headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts. The company signed a 15-year lease on the 120,000-square-foot property on Friday and is expected to begin construction this month.
The new four-story space is being designed to help spur creativity and collaboration amongst the Clarks team. Amenities will include an expansive roof deck, a private outdoor terrace, an employee retail store and an employee fitness center. Skylights, 10-foot high windows and a three-story lobby will invite natural light into the building, which is expected to be certified as LEED Silver. Move-in will happen in phases beginning late Fall ’16.
“We’re thrilled to announce the new location of our corporate office at 1265 Main at CityPoint and are looking forward to the many advantages it will provide our people and business,” said Geralyn R. Breig, President of Clarks Americas, Inc. “Waltham is the next great place for our people to thrive and for Clarks to design stylish, comfortable shoes that meet the needs of our consumers and retail partners. This is a very exciting move for Clarks and I’m confident that 1265 Main will be a great fit for many years to come.”
