Revitalizing Boston's Back Bay

Interview with Patrick Ahearn

One of Boston’s most prolific architects talks with New England Home’s Stacy Kunstel about his role in the transformation of the Back Bay from dilapidated to desireable.

Perhaps more than any other architect, Patrick Ahearn has had a transforming impact on Boston’s Back Bay. From the neighborhood’s downtrodden days in the early 1970s to today’s residential and commercial success, Ahearn has worked on more than 400 of its buildings. We talked at his offices at 160 Commonwealth Avenue.
