40 Trinity AND Copley Place Tower

I like how you can see the proposed Copley Place Tower included in the renderings.

Mayor Menino Gives 40 Trinity Pl. His Provisional Blessing

Developer must "still win the support of the city's planning agency and the neighborhood."



Meanwhile, some design changes have been made:

40 Trinity Place Plants Lobby 18 Floors Up, Gets Sleeker



Quote:
Wowza! When last we checked in on 40 Trinity Place back in the fall, the would-be John Hancock neighbor slated to supplant the Boston Common Hotel and Conference Center, it had 220 hotel rooms and 142 condos, plus plush retail, including restaurants.

Now, new plans filed with the city peg the number of condos at 115, with the number of four-star hotel rooms rising seven notches to 227 (the retail and restaurants are still there). Meanwhile, reacting to resident concerns over the effect the 33-story, 400-foot tower might have on wind, the design was tweaked to make 40 Trinity what they call "wind-neutral." Perhaps the most stunning tweak, though—actually, never mind: the most stunning tweak, bar none—is the two-story lobby starting on the 18th floor. It will have a restaurant, a lounge and deck, all presumably with views of the little people dealing with the wind.

NIMBYs Attack!

BRA Taps The Brakes On 40 Trinity Place


Cocktails with a view? You'll have to wait...

Quote:
The new development 40 Trinity Place is supposed to plunk 227 hotel rooms and 115 condos—not to mention a two-level lobby starting on the 18th floor—in a 33-story glass tower next to the John Hancock.

It now looks like the development will be delayed, at least a bit, as the Boston Redevelopment Authority has yanked the proposal for the 400-foot tower from its latest agenda. Its would-be developer says the likely BRA vote was not advertised enough in advance, an oversight that could feed discontent toward 40 Trinity. And you know the discontent: It's too tall, dense, yada yada. Per Casey Ross in The Globe:

Quote:
"The size of the building they have proposed is so over the top," said Tom Iannotti, a condo owner at the neighboring Clarendon Residences. "The developer and the BRA are so determined to rush the project that they are not taking the time to look at the implications."
He and others have raised concerns that construction of such a tall building on the site would add to high winds in the area and make traffic congestion even worse.
A neighboring tower making up crap to torpedo a project over their lost views? I'm in shock.

Back Bay's 40 Trinity and Its Lobby in the Sky Ain't Dead

But it's still awaiting review and most likely, modifications to the proposal (click above for more).

Back Bay's 40 Trinity Place Proposal Shrinks, Lowers Its Magical Lobby



Quote:
Number of hotel rooms drops too, while number of condos rises

It's been ages since we've checked in with the seemingly stalled project to redevelop the Boston Common Hotel and Conference Center at 40 Trinity Place in Back Bay. Recall that plans had been put forth for a condo-hotel hybrid rising to 33 floors and containing 220 four-star hotel rooms and 142 luxury condos. The pièce de résistance would be a two-story lobby starting on the 18th floor and looking down on the little people.

The proposal has faced blowback from area residents, including owners in the Clarendon condo across the street, who fear losing their natural light to the spire, and others who worry about the effects of 40 Trinity on wind (yes).

The development team behind the tower has now submitted a revised plan that has shrunk its proposed height by seven feet to 393, or 31 stories. The number of hotel rooms has been reduced drastically, too, from that 220 to 154. The number of condos, however, has been bumped by 31 to 146. Affordable housing at the site has been scotched in favor of building 39 such units off-site (17 had been proposed on-site).

Also, and somewhat sadly, the proposed two-story lobby would now start on the 15th floor rather than the 18th.
