AmericanInno is envious of our offices in Boston’s elegant Ames Mansion
We like to think we’re pretty down-to-earth, but we can’t hide the fact that LeanBox’s Boston digs are inside an 1883 mansion that was owned by a wealthy politician.
LeanBox — which provides refrigerated vending machines full of healthy and fresh food — is one of the few startups that has its office in an actual mansion. The building at the corner of Massachusetts and Commonwealth avenues was built in 1883 for Oliver Ames, who was once governor of Massachusetts, and his wife Anna Coffin Ames, according to BackBayHouses.org. The space is dominated by dark, carved wood, fabric-covered walls, crystal chandeliers and gold-trimmed tray ceilings.
