One Devonshire Place is a modern skyscraper in the Government Center neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts directly across from One Boston Place. Built in 1983, it stands 396 feet (121 meters) tall, housing 42 floors.[1]

The building is mixed-use, with 8 floors of offices and 35 of residential space (including a basement level). The building is built on two levels, with the Washington Street side a full story higher than the Devonshire side. There is an open driveway passing through the bottom level between these streets, a rarity for a skyscraper.


The towers are zoned to Boston Public Schools.

For elementary and middle school, students may apply to:

  • Any school within the location's "assignment zone"
    • In this case, the North Zone [1]
  • Any school within the location's "walk zone," regardless of the school's "assignment zone."
    • Eligible "walk zone" schools not citywide and not within the North Zone: None known
  • Any citywide elementary school, middle school, and K-8

All high schools are considered "citywide".
