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,[1] sold Exchange Place to UBS Realty Investors LLC in 2011.[2] It is home to the Boston Consulting Group, law firm Goodwin Procter, advertising agency Hill Holliday, Optaros. Acquia, and The Blackstone Group. The Boston Globe is expected to leave its longtime headquarters on Morrissey Boulevard in Dorchester, Boston and move into Exchange Place in early 2017.[3]
