Lowell, MA Lupoli Development has opened the Experience Center for Thorndike Exchange, an innovative leasing center and community outreach location, created in collaboration with Boston Interiors.

Located at 17 Shattuck St., the Experience Center offers an immersive inside-look at Thorndike Exchange, and includes physical space styling, finishes and furniture, 3D and living renderings, and a movie that will take visitors through the building as if they were there.
