The City Seen from The Boston Globe
BOSTON -- High atop what will be the 22-story InterContinental Boston at 500 Atlantic Ave., glaziers set up swing staging to enable workers to install and caulk the reflective glass that sides the new structure. The views and reflected views from 22 floors up give Kevin Scully, left, and Kevin Montgomery -- who work for Karas & Karas glass company -- a unique vantage on the city. The previous building on the site, which housed NStar's Edison Switch, was only 10 stories. More than twice as high, the InterContinental, scheduled to open in the fall, will feature a luxury waterfront hotel and residences. At center is 125 High Street.
