The Boylston Building is an historic building at 2-22 Boylston Street in Boston, Massachusetts. The six story sandstone building was designed by Carl Fehmer and built in 1887 by Woodbury & Leighton. It is an early instance in Boston of a skeleton-built commercial structure, rather than having load-bearing masonry walls. The building housed the Boylston Market, a wholesale trading exchange which had been on the site since 1810 (in a building designed by Charles Bulfinch).[2]

It was designated as Boston Landmark in 1977 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
