360 Newbury Street 1918, 1989 Side facade seen from Massachusetts Avenue and Boylston St., showing original street facade joined to metal-clad side and rear walls and penthouse addition
Formerly known as the Tower Records Building, 360 Newbury was originally built in 1918 by architect Arthur H. Bowditch. In 1989 it was redesigned by Frank O. Gehry & Associates with Schwartz/Silver Architects. Part of the historic facade is preserved; the blank back wall of the former warehouse was clad in sheets of slate-colored lead-coated copper to protect the deteriorating concrete. Slate-gray metal-sheathed struts define the two-story penthouse addition and also climb the facade on several lower floors over the main entrance on Newbury Street, creating an aggressive profile. In 2005, 360 Newbury was further developed into 54 residential condominium homes (with a retail store at street level). Arthur H. Bowditch (American architect, died 1941); Frank O. Gehry and Associates (American architectural firm, founded 1962)
