BostonMetLife Inc. has appointed JLL as the exclusive leasing agent for One Beacon Street, a one million-square-foot office tower considered a landmark of the Boston skyline.

“MetLife is excited to partner with JLL on One Beacon, which is a core trophy asset and a landmark component of the skyline of Boston,” Joel Redmon, MetLife Investment Management’s managing director, said in a company release. “We look forward to working with JLL to continue to attract a wide range of tenants who value the building’s prime location, rich amenity set, and superior features, including the best views of Boston.”

Situated atop Beacon Hill, One Beacon Street is LEED Platinum certified and offers unparalleled views, a robust infrastructure, a variety of amenities and an extremely accessible location.

Amenities include a UMass Club, Boston Sports Club, Rebecca’s Café, secure bike storage, underground parking, 24-hour security, a full-service bank, and a great deal more just a short distance away.

The building currently is 82 percent leased, and boasts a tenant roster of Gensler, NBBJ, and Environmental Resources Management (ERM). The building is also home to blue chip tenants such as JP Morgan Chase Bank, Boston Consulting Group and Northwest Mutual.

“We are eager to re-introduce One Beacon Street to the Boston brokerage and tenant community,” Bill Barrack, JLL managing director, said in the release. “We truly believe this exceptional property can be an exciting home to all types of companies looking for efficient, modern offices that can support a collaborative work environment.”

One Beacon Street is located in the heart of downtown Boston, and stands at the intersection of the Financial District and the Back Bay. It is nearby both North and South Stations, which service the commuter rail, and the MBTA’s Red, Green, Orange and Blue Lines all converge at nearby stations. In addition, One Beacon offers swift entrance and egress to and from Massachusetts’ major highways.

JLL’s leasing team is led by Bill Barrack, Brad McGill, Molly Heath, Patrick Nugent, and Bryan Sparkes.
