Jamestown’s Office Properties to Offer Lactation Suites as Tenant Amenity
Atlanta, GA-based Jamestown, a design-focused real estate investment and management firm, has entered into an agreement with Work & Mother Services, Inc. to deliver commercial lactation suites as tenant amenities for its 18 Tremont Street office building in Boston and its Ballston Exchange property in Arlington, VA.
18 Tremont Street includes over 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 12 floors of office space. Ballston Exchange includes both office and retail space.
Work & Mother Services, Inc., a lactation service with an associated support resource, the HUB, provides a high-quality, unique building amenity with the appropriate aesthetics that creates safe and healthy environments for nursing mothers while satisfying the legal obligations of tenants to provide private nursing accommodations.
“We are focused on creating inclusive places that improve health and wellness and build community,” said Carrie Denning Jackson, director of innovation at Jamestown. “Work & Mother Services, Inc.’s lactation suites promote a healthy work/life balance for working mothers and help create a more equitable workplace environment for our tenants.”
“Through this partnership, we are transforming underutilized space into a real value-add for tenants in our buildings, added Greg McQuade, SVP of asset management.
