FRAMINGHAM – CommCreative, an international unified marketing agency, today announced the company’s corporate headquarters will relocate to Framingham’s creative community district at 75 Fountain Street.
Currently located on Union Avenue in Framingham, the move comes as CommCreative grows its digital, branding, advertising, and strategic communications services and expands its team of talented employees. Renovations at the new location are currently underway and scheduled for completion by fall 2016.
“In 1910, the R.H. Long Factory Complex was home to a company that manufactured automobiles – the leading, cutting-edge technology of the time. More than 100 years later, CommCreative is restoring the building back to an illustrious space that will once again foster creativity and inspire innovation,” said Bob Fields, president of CommCreative. “Our new headquarters will help revitalize the Framingham business and technology industry, support our continued growth, and enable us to continue to deliver outstanding results to our clients.”
Strategically located 20 miles west of Boston and a half-mile from the Framingham MBTA train station, CommCreative’s Fountain Street headquarters is easily accessible.
The building abuts scenic Farm Pond and will boast 11,000 square feet of customized office space.
The renovation will transform the space with many collaborative areas and a backdrop of mid-century modern meets industrial décor. CommCreative supports clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to regional businesses specializing in finance, healthcare, high-tech, and the retail fields.
“Framingham is an ideal location that attracts top talent from a wide range of communities, offers companies lower operating costs than larger cities and maintains an infrastructure that supports businesses,” said Arthur Robert, director of Framingham’s Community and Economic Development. “Bob Fields is a leader who continues to invest in the Framingham business community. His Fountain Street investment highlights the advantages our Downtown offers to cutting-edge creative economy companies.”
Built in the early 1900’s, the R.H. Long Factory Complex is listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the Massachusetts Historical Commission. The factory was built and owned by Richard H. Long for use as a shoe factory during World War I, and later served as a factory for Bay State Automobile. The location has been re-purposed multiple times throughout history, and was most recently known as the Kenwood Center.
“CommCreative has been a longstanding and collaborative member of our business community in Framingham, and we are very happy with its decision to relocate in such close proximity to other creative economy businesses and creative individuals,” said Framingham Town Manager Bob Halpin. “CommCreative’s new location adds significantly to the community we are building in Downtown Framingham.”
Founded in 1991, CommCreative is a unified marketing agency offering digital, branding, advertising, and strategic communications services to a robust roster of finance, healthcare, high-tech and retail clients.
