The debt replaces $170m of construction financing that the lenders provided two years ago and allows for a recapture of equity.

The 500,000-square-foot, 12-storey office building and an adjoining 970-car garage is fully-leased to financial services giant State Street, which opened the new building last month. Completed last year, it can house more than 3,500 employees.
