Prudential Tower - Boston's Iconic Landmark & Skyscraper

The Prudential Tower of Boston, MA - A Must See!

The Prudential Tower of Boston is beautifully situated in the Back Bay district at 800 Boylston Street. It is a 907 feet skyscraper with 52 stories and about 1.2 million sq feet floor area. The Tower is the tallest building in the Prudential Center which is flanked by streets including Belvidere street, Exeter, Dalton, and Boylston street. It is also one of the three locations where Boston Duck Tours, a famous tourist attraction in the city, depart from.

Prudential Tower is widely acknowledged for both its commercial and business purposes.
The exquisite Charles Luckman -designed, skyscraper steel erection work was started by Donovan Steelin 1960. This became the world's tallest structure outside of New York City when it was completed in 1964. Before the Prudential construction, the area was a toggle yard for the Boston and Albany Railroad until 1965 when a road was built beneath portions of the Prudential complex. This encouraged development and accessibility of the area. Today, Prudential Tower does not only rank as the second tallest building in Boston and 114th-tallest in the United States serving mostly for restaurants, offices and observatory, but also attracts over three million visitors annually.

Great experience from start to finish. Very knowledgeable and courteous staff. They had by far the best quality and warranty, which is why I went with them. They also offer amazing financing plans which allowed me to complete the entire project at once as I had hoped. Highly recommended.

Prudential Tower - History with a Bird's Eye View

The Tower features stores and malls on the first few floors, offices, restaurants, cafes, fitness facilities, and other amenities through the others.

Don't Miss the Sights of Boston!

Can one leave the Tower without a visit to The Multimedia Movie Theatre? Where two distinct movies, both of which have a strong Boston connection, are always shown. "Wings Over Boston" offers one a visual tour through the historic city whereas "Dreams of Freedom" transports you back in time to learn about the city's history and diverse cultural treasures. The multi-language audio tour in the theater is a must-see for everyone interested in learning about Boston's history. The Prudential Tower, though recently closed because of COVID-19 has always been a place of connection and discoveries proving to be beyond business and mere entertainment. And, since it is only a few blocks east of Fenway Park, it’s a great sight seeing option before or after a ball game.
