The limited supply of Back Bay options is providing a creative opportunity for landlords.  Equity Office (EOP) is looking to add 80,000 square feet of space to the front of 500 Boylston Street.

From the Boston Globe:

“Equity Office Properties notified the Boston Redevelopment Authority Friday of its plans to build an 80,000-square-foot addition in front of the 25-story tower and its main entrance. The company also wants to convert up to 50,000 square feet of office space in the tower to retail…500 Boylston was the subject of controversy even before it opened in 1989. Designed by the celebrated architect Philip Johnson with John Burgee Architects, its postmodern style was divisive.”
