A Letter to Boston Properties on the Impact of Shadows

October 3, 2017

Old South Church wrote to Boston Properties regarding the impact of shadows from the Back Bay / South End Gateway Project on Old South Church in Boston and the community.

"As the City of Boston has changed, so too has the ecosystem of Old South. It used to be that the vast majority of our members lived in Boston. No more. More and more our members are priced out of Boston by new initiatives like Back Bay / South End Gateway Project. They have and are moving to towns like Billerica, Reading, Lawrence, Pepperell and Brockton. This is profoundly concerning and disheartening."

Inquiries may be directed to Rev. John Edgerton, john@oldsouth.org.
