More details shared by Boston Properties yesterday:
From the above press release:
  • Immersive experiential exhibits and bistro on the 50th floor
  • Indoor/outdoor cocktail lounge and 360-degree outdoor viewing deck on the 51st floor
  • Double height (24-foot) indoor viewing space on the 52nd floor

Apparently this is being branded as "View Boston"

2023 is a long timeline for such a small project

Top of the Hub was the name of the old skyroom restaurant that was on the 52nd floor. Skywalk was the name of the old obs deck that was on the 50th floor. Guess they wanted to get away from that & give it a somewhat more classy name.

I'm willing to bet that the John Hancock Tower will reopen its observatory & give it a fancy spruced-up name to compete with the Pru Tower. :)
