South Bay tower has been around. South Station has been since at least 2000. They are emblematic of Boston's failure to have major highrises materialize. Usually when a billionaire developer and the city mayor conspire to build something, it will at least have a chance. But no...it might cast a shadow.

Actually, the SST is slated to start work around the end of this year or beginning of next year. There are works at SST that has started already but nothing major.

The best thing about this tower is the colossal impact it will have by dwarfing everything around it.
But it's BOX for God's sake!!!!

How laim!?

i did some research,just so there is no confusion, here are a few things.

South Bay Tower-this was a asian looking large tower planned near the entrance of chinatown. it is most likely not going to happen. it is also known as the "gateway center"

South Station Tower-this is around the same height as the pru and hancawk, and will be built over south station. construction has already begun.

Trans-National Place-the big thing we are talking about. i dont think i need to say anything more

They should adapt the Dubai Bureaucracy where everything that gets approved will get built on the next week or two!

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.

Sounds like they are making slow progress. No new renders yet.

In addition to the parking garage, a 12-story midrise building known as 133 Federal Street would be torn down.
