Moreover, why are there no skyscrapers in Boston?
And for most of the first half of the 20th century, while New York and Chicago built skyscrapers, zoning rules downtown prevented anything above 125 feet. That kept Boston's skyline dominated by church steeples, just as it was during Colonial times.
Beside above, what is the Hancock Tower called now?
875 North Michigan Avenue, formerly the John Hancock Center, is a 100-story, 1,128-foot supertall skyscraper located in Chicago, Illinois. Located in the Magnificent Mile district, its name was changed to 875 North Michigan Avenue on February 12, 2018.
