Firm Transforms Unusable Space into High-End New Corporate Headquarters For Polaris Capital Management, LLC

WALTHAM, MASS. – March 27, 2014– Vantage Builders, Inc., a general contracting and construction firm based in Waltham, Mass., has announced the completion of an extensive 9,000 square foot office renovation project for Glanz Properties at 121 High Street, Boston.

After leasing the second floor of 121 High Street to Polaris Capital Management, LLC, Glanz Properties hired Vantage Builders to renovate the location. The firm transformed the segmented, multi-tenant space into an elegant new headquarters for the global value investment management firm. Construction of the new Class A space was conducted in the otherwise 100% occupied building, with retail and restaurants below and additional commercial tenants above.

The new office, designed by architects Dyer Brown & Associates, features exposed post and beam ceiling and brick walls. Elegant finishes include glass walls, with frameless glass doors, custom field finished five inch wide hickory plank flooring, solid surface countertops and intricate millwork throughout.

“The architect had a very unique, very interesting design in mind for the space,” said Mike Thayer, project manager for Vantage Builders. “We were able to bring that vision to life, within the planned timeframe and while being sensitive to the other tenants in this very busy building.”

The project also included building system work. The office features entirely new electrical service, with high-end fixtures, as well as a state-of-the-art Mitsubishi CITY MULTI variable cooling and heating system.
