101 Clarendon StreetEdit profile
101 Clarendon Street, also known as Columbus Center, is a proposed skyscraper planned for Boston, Massachusetts. If completed, it would stand as the 25th-tallest building in Boston. Continuing on the trend established by the Prudential Tower in 1964, the completed building will conceal more of the Massachusetts Turnpike by utilizing air rights above it. The location will be above the Mass Pike, directly to the east of Back Bay station and south of Copley Square in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston.
The project has been delayed since March 2008 with the developers citing a need for about $35 million in state funds and loans, some of which had been denied ironically because construction had stopped. The future of the project is uncertain and interim measures to clean up the site to preconstruction condition are underway.
