BOSTON | 533 Washington Street (Canvas) | 305ft | 30 fl | Pro

A 25-year-old Boston University graduate with little development experience has proposed an ambitious addition to Boston’s skyline: a slender, 30-story “pencil tower” improbably shoehorned onto a tiny parcel in Downtown Crossing.

The builder is Collin Yip, who has a degree in business administration from Boston University and has renovated several small buildings in the North End and Cambridge. The building proposed for Washington Street would be by far his largest undertaking, rising 305 feet on less than one-tenth of an acre, a lot just 38 feet wide across the front.

Dubbed “Canvas,” it would contain 94 residences, offices, restaurants, and several co-working and business incubator spaces. The plans, which have already drawn concern from the owner of the neighboring building, were detailed in a letter filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority on Monday by Yip’s development startup, Rafi Properties LLC.

The skyscraper would be built over the former Felt nightclub at 533 Washington St., preserving the façade of the four-story building that’s currently on the site.

The company thinks its project will fit just fine; it envisions Canvas as a part of Boston’s emerging downtown.

Another Parking-Free Residential Tower Slated for Boston

In July, we looked at five residential projects across North America that eschewed a private parking garage. It's a trend that's sweeping the continent, especially walkable cities like Boston, where the amenities and conveniences of downtown living are at your doorstep. Looking to add another development to the parking-free list is Rafi Properties, who is planning to build a 30-storey tower in the dense Downtown Crossing neighbourhood.
