The Boston Landmarks Commission last night unanimously voted to give protected status to a Downtown Crossing block of buildings housing Filene’s department store, meaning two of the four buildings in the complex must be substantially preserved.

Designation of landmark status means the facades of the two buildings must be largely retained, and the prospective new owner, Vornado Realty Trust of New York, will have to work with the panel as it redevelops the site.
