Boston is growing up: How a changing skyline is changing the city

“Boston is a super high-value city,” said George Thrush, a professor of architecture at Northeastern University. “Boston, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, these are the absolute economic dynamos of the United States.”
Thrush says the thriving economy is attracting new people with new priorities.
“There are people from all over the world living here, there’s been a dramatic demographic change,” said Thrush. “They all work in modern industries [and] are much more comfortable with technology, with tall buildings, with all things new.”
