How WEX stepped in to make room for the Roux Institute

Northeastern University’s plans to open a technology education site in Portland — the Roux Institute — coincided with WEX Inc.’s abundance of new office space.

The Roux Institute has sublet 20,000 square feet, or one floor, at 100 Fore St., a new building that is expected to be completed in early fall. The institute expects to move in this fall.

WEX (NYSE: WEX) originally planned to have two floors in 100 Fore St., but for at least four years it will occupy one floor, or 20,000 square feet. The building is on the backside of WEX’s two-year-old headquarters at 1 Hancock St. Learn more
