16 Tremont Street. Boston.  Stony Creek Granite facing.

6 Tremont Street. The Bank of America building at the corner of Tremont and Court Streets is faced with polished Stony Creek Granite.

New buildings in the Marketplace are: One Faneuil Hall Square (housing Abercrombie & Fitch), Graham Gund Architects, 1988, faced with Stony Creek Granite;

125 Summer Street. A large complex incorporating the façades of several old commercial buildings at the base and a central new tower.  Stony Creek Granite is used in the new portions of the complex.

125 HIGH STREET. Built in 1991, this building was designed by the Boston firm Jung/Brannen.  This building is a fine example of modern thin granite cladding, probably attached to a steel truss backup.  The granite at the base is Deer Isle granite from Maine, and the balance of the building is Stony Creek Granite from Connecticut.  Note the effective use of contrasting polished and thermal finishes and false joints in single stone panels, giving decorative geometric designs and the appearance of several smaller stones.

75 STATE STREET -Across Kilby Street is Exchange Place. Exchange Place provides another example of façade preservation.  The granite on the old façade is Stony Creek Granite.
