John Hancock Tower

Notable Building in Back Bay

Constructed with more than 10,000 panels of mirrored glass, the 62-story John Hancock Tower was designed in 1976 by Henry Cobb. It is the tallest and most beloved skyscraper on the Boston skyline – despite the precarious falling panes of glass when it was first built. The Hancock offers an amazing perspective on Trinity Church, reflected in its facade.
