In a move that could cast a shadow over efforts to sell downtown Bostonâ€™s retail flagship, a City Hall report is calling for â€œlandmarkâ€? status for the historic Fileneâ€™s building
A study released yesterday by the Boston Landmarks Commission recommends this key designation, not only for the 1912 department store, but for a pair of modern additions that cover a full city block.
A vote is scheduled for next month.
