These companies relocating downtown are relying on significantly higher rates of walk/bike/transit commuting among their workers in order to offset parking costs, but that's gonna be a tall order on Thompson's Point.
The renderings of the Thompson's point building don't exactly look spectacular. It looks like a very bland and uninspired suburban office building. It seems like it would be best used as medical office space.

I could see a big company being interested in the Portland Foreside offices, especially being so close to the water and new WEX hq. It's a very desireable location.
