Brown Brothers moving to Post Office Square

Deal is latest to boost Financial District

Brown Brothers Harriman & Co., the oldest privately held financial institution in the country, is moving to a historic building in Boston’s Financial District, signing one of the largest leases in the city in recent years.

The company will relocate its nearly 2,000 Boston employees, now spread among several properties, into a newly renovated tower at 50 Post Office Square. The deal adds to strong leasing activity in the Financial District and fills most of a prominent building that has been empty since Verizon Communications Inc. moved out in 2010.
