It is situated in the Back Bay area of the city, on the banks of the Charles River.

This building is close to The Commonwealth Avenue Mall. This Mall is a grand allée of shade trees forming the central axis of the Back Bay, connecting the Public Garden to the Back Bay Fens. The Commonwealth Avenue Mall’s 32 acres were designed in the French boulevard style by Arthur Gilman in 1856. From its inception, the Mall has been a vital amenity for both residents and visitors. Winston Churchill praised it as “the grandest boulevard in North America.”
Within steps you can be on Boston’s crown-jewel of public outdoor space, the Boston Public Garden. Around the corner you will have access to the finest designer clothing and retail stores on Newbury Street. An abundance of Boston’s most revered restaurants and cafes can also be found within a short walk along Newbury and Boylston Streets.
Beginning in 1857 and continuing until 1880, the Back Bay, the body of water separating Boston from Brookline, was filled, adding 450 acres of land to the city of Boston. Today it stands as one of the City’s premiere neighborhoods. Marked by historic and exclusive boulevards, such as Newbury Street and Commonwealth Avenue, the Back Bay is home to the northern portion of the City’s Emerald Necklace, the green space that threads its way through the inner core of the city.
The neighborhood is also one of the busiest retail sections of Boston, with a thriving commercial center along Boylston and Newbury Streets, and including the nearby Prudential Center and Copley Place.
