State Street isn’t seeking state tax credits for new Boston office tower

State Street Corp. said it will not seek additional tax incentives from the state government to move into a new office complex on the South Boston Waterfront, beyond the $11.5 million local property tax break it won from the City of Boston.

In an interview at the Globe Monday, chief executive Jay Hooley also said State Street did not explicitly promise to create or retain any jobs to win the tax break. Several other financial companies, including Liberty Mutual, received both city and state subsidies for new office developments in exchange for promises to add hundreds of new jobs in the city.
