Portland, Maine, May 23, 2024: Hearts of Pine LLC, a Portland-based professional soccer team, leased 2,300± SF of office space at One Union Wharf.

Hearts of Pine will train and play at Portland’s Fitzpatrick Stadium, a 6,000-seat venue just off I-295. The team’s first game is slated for Spring 2025, and the business staff needed space to prepare for the inaugural season.

“We needed affordable, built-out office space that could enable us to get up and running quickly, while also having room to grow into,” said the organization’s president, Kevin Schohl. “One Union Wharf fit the bill, as it came with parking, sits in the heart of the city, and is an area that’s frequented by both tourists and locals.”

The Boulos Company’s Cameron Foster represented Hearts of Pine. Jack Baumann of Compass Commercial Brokers represented the landlord, Jonathan Cohen. The high-profile Commercial Street building was a recent investment for Cohen’s group, 5 Widgery Wharf, LLC. “We love the idea of professional soccer in Maine and want to support it as much as possible.”

The soccer team is Portland’s first professional soccer team and will feature in League One of the United Soccer League. Anyone who would like to place a $25 deposit toward 2025 season tickets is invited to visit Hearts of Pine.
