Those are the best Boston skyline shots I've seen. Is the tall shiny glass building in the last photo John Hancock?

The one and only. You can also see it towards the right in the second pic.

Does the company still go by the name 'John Hancock' or did they change to 'Manulife' like their parent company?

2 of our Toronto members did some work to depict changes happening in Toronto. The first shows plans directly west of the CBD in an area known as the Entertainment District. The second is a set of 3 models of the CBD to Yorkville. Of course there's lots of development in Toronto beyond these 2 areas, but they do illustrate how quickly the skyline is changing.

The Entertainment district, U/C or proposed (massing)

The tower is still called the John Hancock Tower. It has a mix of companies working in the tower, and I'm not even sure if the namesake is one of them. I don't expect the building to change its name like the Sears Tower did, and I would be pretty pissed if it happened!

Amazing what's going on in Toronto. As discussed before, all that city needs is at least a nice supertall.

Meanwhile in New York, the new WTC is making its prominence more and more visible...

^ Needs more talls. The Ritz is really the saving grace of that skyline. Looks impressive, but doesn't have the scale of many of the other cities on this thread. (all the residential towers with their high floor counts give off a nice illusion though) Is that twisting 600' tower still going to happen?
