Here’s a look inside MassMutual’s new 17-story Seaport building

If Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. CEO Roger Crandall has any trepidation about opening a $300 million, 310,000-square-foot building when most of his employees are still working from home because of the pandemic, he isn’t showing it.

Springfield-based MassMutual held the grand opening of its 17-floor office tower at 10 Fan Pier Boulevard in Boston’s Seaport District on Wednesday. The celebration included the requisite ribbon-cutting-with-giant-scissors, along with speeches from Crandall, developer Joe Fallon and Gov. Charlie Baker, glasses of champagne for employees, and Massachusetts delicacies such as Friendly’s famous Fribbles.

The building has space for 1,000 MassMutual employees. At the moment, it has about 600 in the Boston area, roughly 200 more than it had when it broke ground on the tower in mid-2019.
