Boston highrises west of the PRU

6 posts in this topic

I wanted to show some of the buildings far west of the Financial District, Back Bay and Prudential Center, that are not commonly photographed, and many outside Boston may not have ever seen. The tour starts at the old Sears building in the Fenway, and moves west to Longwood Medical area, and then back to the east past Northeastern U. Longwood has many highrises topping out around 300 feet. It is a center for Harvard Medical School and is growing like crazy. I saw new steel going up in 3 places and UC buildings in several others. A 305 ft mixed use building is approved, and expected to start constrion soon.

Old Sears builidng. 1Million + sq ft, built in the 1920s. Now upscale retail, movie theater, and offices.

The old Harvard Med Builidngs are amazing. There are so many

built with limestone stairs, pillars and walls.

Awsome pics! Boston is a great city - lots of great architecture & a very urban city. I'd love living there, but it gets too cold for me.

I used to work in the LMA and I really liked that area for whatever reason. Loved my commute getting on and off the train and Longwood on the D line. It's a great little trolley stop, nice way to start/end the day.
