It's Monday and this parking lot at Crown Colony Office Park will be filling up fast. Crown Colony, located seven miles south of Boston, is an office complex built within a 175 acres gravel pit. This development accommodates two million square feet of office space in more than 13 buildings. A park-like atmosphere for the complex has been carefully established through the extensive use of tree-lined boulevards, ponds, fountains and walkways. This attractive landscaping can be attributed to MKA Landscape Architects and Mary Smith Associates of Quincy who also helped transform Marina Bay. The empty lots are good places for driving students to practice their new skills on weekends . . . so beware if you decide to go for a stroll there on a Saturday or Sunday.
