“The chic, bright work
environment is enlivened
by city views and natural
daylight. The breakroom
area offers healthy snack
selections and a place to
socialize and collaborate
other than one’s own desk.
It’s more than just a pantry –
it’s a communal space with a
comfortable, relaxed vibe and
lots of breathing room.”
Deniz Ferendeci, Director of Asset Design +

WHEN BOSTON PROPERTIES SET OUT TO RENOVATE 101 and 506 Carnegie Center, two of the buildings in its 2 million-square-foot
campus in Princeton, NJ, the firm wanted to update the dated interiors and bring them in line with other buildings on the campus.
Starbucks-branded coffee kiosks do double duty as a way to both modernize the buildings and provide valuable amenities for ten-
ants who need a place to grab a hot cup of coffee when the cafe was closed.
“Now when you go to the cafes at 101 and 506 Carnegie Center, they’re filled at almost any
time of day with people who come down to do work, have conferences and interview people.
We have some high tables, low tables and booths, and that diverse experience allows people
to lunch high or pull over to a corner with some lounge furniture.”

ONE HIGHLIGHT OF TRUE FIT’S HEADQUARTERS is The Pantry, an eatery
