111 huntington avenue and the pru, from cambridge (sonya kovacic)

 

"Guys, flat roofs don't make it."

— Mayor Thomas Menino, when a proposed design for 111 Huntington Avenue (the building next to the Prudential Tower) included a flat roof. The developers then presented the mayor with several other options, until he handpicked the signature rounded roof seen on the skyscraper today. Its unique look has earned it a nickname: Boston's "R2-D2 Building."

 

111 Huntington Avenue may soon be getting a new, taller neighbor. A proposed skyscraper in the Christian Science Plaza would be the city's tallest residential building.
