Prudential Tower (1964)

Prudential Center

The Prudential Tower, part of Boston’s Prudential Center complex in the Back Bay, is the city’s second tallest skyscraper. It was designed by Charles Luckman and Associates for Prudential Insurance and built between 1960 and 1964. It towered over the nearby John Hancock building of 1947, which prompted the rival insurance company to build a taller tower in 1975.
