Today in Pictures - NPR Home in NoMa

Under construction since the summer of 2009, work is winding down on National Public Radio's new home in NoMa.  Three years may seem a long time for a mid-sized office building, but developer Boston Properties first had to abate the toxic substances from the 83-year-old Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Companies Warehouse before they could begin building on top.

Initial work was secretive, as NPR refused requests to release initial plans or renderings of the project, which bears an unfortunate resemblance to the FBI headquarters downtown.  Hickok Cole Architects designed the addition to the historic warehouse, which is providentially set back from the historic structure.
