    State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

    This pic -- from 2018 and posted on this site -- seems to line up perfectly with what we're getting. But, hey -- whatever. Get upset about the mechanical ph if if makes you happy. This is a great addition to the skyline.

    Prudential Tower Observatory Closure & Renovation | 800 Boylston St | Back Bay

    Prudential Financial has a suite on the 45th floor (I believe). The signage rights are grandfathered in and were both part of the original development deal in the '60s and part of the more recent sale to Boston Properties about 20 years ago. It's going to have that PRUDENTIAL sign on the...
