Yay!—Another Bank in Back Bay; Mesmerizing Backsplashes

BACK BAY—The one-time FAO Schwarz store will become... wait for it... a bank: "The bank will occupy about 8,500 square feet on two floors at 440 Boylston St. at the Berkeley Street intersection, one of the most visible locations in the Back Bay, said people familiar with the transaction." [Biz Journal]
BROOKLINE—What may be the Hub's finest backsplashes can be found at 163 Kent, apparently: "The kitchens and living areas are about the same with an open floor plan front to back, the center being the grey toned kitchen. The glass backsplash immediately draws the eye no matter where you are standing, unless you are on one of the peaceful decks." [Ruth Lerner]
