Massachusetts General Hospital is moving forward with a $1.9 billion building project that could reshape a busy stretch of downtown Boston near the Longfellow Bridge.

The project — which could take almost ten years to complete — involves demolishing three historic buildings and erecting two connected towers on Cambridge Street.

Here’s a glimpse of what that might look like:
