Did you know Boylston St. is named after Mr. Ward Boylston (he grew up in JP). Boylston Street was originally known as Frogg Lane! Sitting mid-block between A & B is 399 Boylston St., designed by CBT & built by MetLife in 1983. The 215,000 SF building was designed to look like period buildings from the street scape & then is capped with a glass front with 360 views of the city. They have a Tatte there now!
