33 Congress Street is a 16-story office building within the Congress Square redevelopment in Boston’s Financial District. The property consists of three interconnected early 20th century structures, previously home to Shawmut Bank and more recently part of Fidelity’s headquarters. The most notable feature of this adaptive reuse and renovation is the seven-story steel jewel box addition with a setback, which creates the appearance that it is “floating” above the building. There is an intended distinction between the building and its glass addition, sitting prominently on the city corner. The structure invites newness, yet its gold, glossy finish complements the metal work and historic façade of the original building.
