Exchange Place is a modern skyscraper in the Financial District of Boston, Massachusetts. Built in 1985, it is Boston's 13th tallest building, standing 510 feet (155 m) tall, and containing 40 floors.

The modern glass skyscraper rises out of a previous building, the 12-story Boston Stock Exchange, built in 1896.

Brookfield Office Properties, which had previously purchased the building from Harold Theran in 2006,[2] sold Exchange Place to UBS Realty Investors LLC in 2011.[3] It is home to the Boston Consulting Group, law firm Goodwin Procter, advertising agency Hill Holliday, Optaros. Acquia, Hachette Book Group and The Blackstone Group. In June 2017, the Boston Globe moved into Exchange Place from its longtime headquarters on Morrissey Boulevard in Dorchester, Boston.[4]
