Phoenix 'Boat Building' Named to National Register

In recognition of its unique, two-sided design, the headquarters of the Phoenix Companies has been added to the National Register of Historic Places. The building was constructed on Constitution Plaza in 1963 and quickly became known as the "boat building" because of its lenticular shape. To mark the occasion, the Phoenix Foundation is granting $10,000 to the Hartford Preservation Alliance. For more on the building, visit the Phoenix website.
