About 125 High Street
125 High Street is a 30 floor Modern highrise in the Financial District of Boston, Massachusetts. Standing 452 feet (138 m) tall, the highrise is currently the 22nd-tallest building in the city. 125 High Street has approximately 1.8 million square feet (167,000 square meters) of Class A office space. It was designed by Jung Brannen Associates. The complex consists of four buildings. The exterior is of a unifying granite, with entrances to the building through the High Street Tower and Oliver Street Tower. The two towers are connected via a central 8-story atrium with skylights 150 feet (46 m) above the floor. NYNEX (now Verizon and formerly Bell Atlantic), one of Massachusetts' largest employers, wished to consolidate into a single headquarters facility. It was formerly the site of the Traveler's Insurance Building. The existing 16-story, 300,000 square foot (28,000 square meter) structure was demolished in 1988 to make room for 125 High Street.
