Discussion One Faneuil Hall Square Commentary

This late 1980's building in cenntral Boston is considered to be either a fine and thoughtful work of sensitive contextualism, or a weak imitation of its revered neighbors. Compared to a number of its Post-Modern contemporaries, the composed facade and elegant, restrained dignity may give the building superior aesthetic lasting power.

Details

Seven stories and 70 feet high, with street grade at different levels on the State Street and Merchants Row sides.
