Although shining uptown office towers attract the most attention, there’s a whole crop of office buildings under construction that aren’t as tall but might be more interesting visually.
In uptown and the surrounding areas, developers are racing to meet booming office demand with smaller buildings. These range from three to a dozen stories, and they’re either designed for specific tenants or being built speculatively.
Several of them are in South End, and they’re all going for a less-corporate vibe than you might get uptown. Here’s a look at some of the most prominent:
