View the city of Boston from an outdoor observation deck atop a 750-foot-tall skyscraper. The new View Boston observatory will open on 3 floors in 2023. Different attractions, dining options, and shopping experiences will offer you views of the city unlike anything before spanning the 50th, 51st, and 52nd floors of the Prudential Center.
It’s a bittersweet transformation for the city. With the expansion of View Boston, the landmark restaurant, Top of the Hub, closed its doors after 54 years in business to make way for the renovations. Luckily two new panoramic restaurants will open with the renovations.
