Beautiful tower and a great addition to the skyline. I just can't believe that there is so much construction going on in all the major Northeastern cities, except Boston.

Boston is having a small boom. There are 5 or 6 300' to 400' footers going up, a 600' foot tower called South Station Tower and they are making progress with the 1000' footer. Nothing like NY or Philly, bit it's something that makes for a little excitment up here. In about 5 years, the skyline will have improved dramatically!

Belkin's super tower behind scheduleBoston Business Journal - by Michelle Hillman Journal staff

Belkin: Design updates slow tower plan
View Larger The proposed 1,000-foot Financial District tower proposed by entrepreneur Steve Belkin is behind schedule -- at least in part because he is redesigning the building to increase its square footage by 200,000 square feet to 1.7 million.

The tower is being designed by CBT/Childs Bertman Tseckares Architects Inc. of Boston after the lead architect, world-renowned Renzo Piano, dropped off the team in March. Belkin has not discussed the reasons for the split publicly, but Piano has said he was asked to increase the width of the skinny, 80-story tower he designed.

There are at least three design schemes being considered, including 76-, 77- and 79-story versions, according to a source who asked not to be named because the plans have not been finalized or made public. The Boston Redevelopment Authority's director of planning, Kairos Shen, recently confirmed the tower is expanding.

"Now it's grown to 1.7 million square feet," said Shen, addressing a crowd at a meeting of the Associated General Contractors of Massachusetts last week.

This picture was taken from one of the condominiums near the top of the mixed use "Two Liberty Place" tower. The glass on the crown is almost finished.

...I couldn't agree more! Hate Comcast, greedy mo-fo's!! I swear I should own a large part of that tower after all the huge bills I send to them every month. Amazing building though, love it! It's really exciting watching the cities tallest building go up, wish I had physically seen Sears Tower in Chicago, US Bank Tower in LA and the Four Season's in Miami rise from the ground in person; love those buildings.

Superbly elegant tower. This is one tower I wish we were getting. Makes the others next to it look rather vulgar though. Regardless, one of the best scrapers going up anywhere in the world. Congrats.
