Rooftop park awaits crowds at Old Post Office

Promoters of the Old Post Office, an imposing trophy from a real estate boom now muted by the pandemic, showed off its newest attraction Monday for current and potential corporate customers who might not be ready to appreciate it.

It’s a 3.5-acre landscaped rooftop now open to tenants and their guests. With a contoured palette of plants, a running track, basketball and paddle ball courts and three bee colonies to service the wildflowers. Its planners said while it has been in the works for two years, the rooftop park has the post-COVID virtue of providing outdoor space for people tired of their desks.

For now, the chances of the rooftop getting crowded are slight.

Of the companies who have moved to the building, only about 10% of the employees are present, said Brian Whiting, CEO of the Telos Group, the leasing agent.
