BOSTON | Liberty Mutual Tower | 88m | 290ft | 22 fl | Com

No thread for this, but it's quite a ways up already. Renders taken from Archboston.

Are those buildings on the corner going to be demolished once tower is completed?

No. Also, I'm not sure if it's over 100m.

Probably not, but I think it is approx 300 feet (100 meters is 328'), so on that respect it's still technically in the right category.

Yeah I also meant that I think it's not over 300 ft. Looks like ~270 ft to me, great project, but until we get an exact height this should probably be in General Urban Developments.

If the numbers on that elevation drawing are a measurement of feet, then it's around 365 feet tall including the mechanical thing I see on the roof. That is correct in relation to the scale of the vehicles in the drawing. That would make for about 15 foot floor to floor heights, which is becoming fairly standard with office buildings (some are even going 16 now).

I vote this thread stays exactly where it is.

Also, if it's out of the highrise section, where is this thread being moved to?

Highrises
Discussions of projects under construction between 100-199m/300-649ft tall.

General Urban Developments
Discussions of projects shorter than 100m/300ft.

Do you understand ?

I'd say It's more like historism/postmodernism.
