Hard to believe that would not be doable.
Anything's possible, we'll have to see what proposals come in.

Also there's the long-stalled South Station Tower project that may go over 800 feet.

The RFP issued by Mayor Walsh has brought in a raft of different proposals:

Tall orders for skyline

Winthrop Square proposals aim high

A new Financial District tower could reshape the Boston skyline under competing redevelopment proposals for the shuttered Winthrop Square garage.

Eight development teams are vying to change the city’s skyscraper hierarchy with a superstructure as high as 780 feet that would rival the 750-foot Prudential and 790-foot Hancock towers in the Back Bay.

The Walsh administration in February called for new proposals for the city-owned garage where former Mayor Thomas M. Menino once envisioned a 1,000-foot building. That call came after Trans Nat
ional Group — which originally planned a 1,000-foot project at the site in 2006 — had restarted city talks last fall about a smaller 740-foot project.

Trans National and a host of other well-known Boston developers submitted proposals Monday. They include:

HYM Investment Group: A public plaza amid a new 500-seat St. Anthony Shrine Church, a new Friary and Ministry Center, and a new 50,000-square-foot Boston public school. The current St. Anthony Shrine on Arch Street would be replaced with a 780-foot, 69-story tower with 700 apartments and condos.

Accordia Partners: A 750-foot tower with 140 condos, a 275-room Le Meridien hotel, retail, civic space and a public gallery.

Lend Lease Development, Hudson Group North America and Eagle Development Group: A 750-foot, 68-story tower with innovation economy offices, 156 condos, 288 apartments, a 300-room hotel, retail and a public green.

Millennium Partners: A 750-foot tower with 360 residential units atop 14 stories of office space, 41,000 square feet of retail, a market arcade “winter garden” with artisanal vendors, restaurants and performance activity that Millennium compares to Leadenhall Arcade in London’s Financial District.

Trans National Properties: A 740-foot, 54-story tower with 700,000 square feet of innovation economy offices, apartments, 100 condos, 300 hotel rooms, a retail-lined public galleria, and a Boston Public Market outpost. It would also have a 21,500-square-foot Entrepreneur Innovation Center, an Innovation Sculpture Park and Innovators Walk of Fame. It would combine the site with 133 Federal St.

Fallon Co.: Two residential buildings on a street-level retail podium: a larger 700-foot, 53-story building with 32 floors of apartments and 18 floors of condos; and a smaller 75-foot apartment building. Plans call for a galleria-style open concourse with 25,000-plus square feet for shops.

Trinity Acquisitions: A 51-story tower with 328 apartments, 261 condos, a 276-room hotel and retail.

Lincoln Property Co.: A 47-story tower with 29 floors of office space, a 250 to 300-room hotel, six floors of condos, and retail.

This project is now the closest to being realized that it's been since it was shot down before the recession.

Here's an article with the details:

Submissions for the RFP were released this afternoon on the BRA website all proposals are supposed to have a zoning height of 725 feet if I remember correctly and I believe they also wanted an observation deck included as well. 115 Winthrop Square RFP Responses

Latest Winthrop Square Proposals, Renders



Quote:
A proposal from a team led by Accordia Partners would built a 725-foot tower with 280 hotel rooms, 185 condos, 34,000 square feet of civic and community space, and 2,600 square feet of retail as well as 385 parking spaces.


Quote:
Millennium Partners would build yet another 725-foot tower (and, bear in mind, this one, like the others, would include dozens of additional feet of mechanical apparatus and antennas). Thirty-eight floors would be given over to condos and perhaps apartments, the makeup isn't clear. At least 14 floors would be offices, and then retail.


Quote:
Trans National does not go into specifics on height nor unit totals, but its proposed complex would run to 1,715,000 square feet over two towers, with another 250,000 below ground. Residences, including condos, would comprise 915,000 square feet of that above-ground sum, with offices the next biggest chunk at 530,000 square. There would also be a hotel.


Quote:
Trinity Financial would build a tower of up to 725 feet with 231 hotel rooms on the lower floors; 349 apartments above that; and then 296 condos spread throughout. There would also be a full floor of amenities and one parking space for each condo.

Millennium Partners design has been chosen.

Millennium Partners tapped by city to build tower at Winthrop Square



Quote:
City officials have picked Millennium Partners to develop the prized site of the Winthrop Square Garage.

The Boston Redevelopment Authority said Wednesday that it will start negotiations with Millennium — a New York-based developer that just completed the Millennium Tower luxury condo building— to build Boston’s third-tallest building on the site of a squat city-owned garage on Devonshire Street.

The FAA limit is officially 725 feet so this may shrink a bit depending on if they grant a height variance. But there is no way it could go any taller without an immediate shutdown from the FAA.

Why does the FAA care so much if there are already taller buildings in Boston? I think they should at least be allowed to pass Hancock by a few feet.

Boston really needs a new tallest...

Hancock is built in the back bay farther from the airport, though I agree with you their reasoning is sound.

Plans for Boston's Tallest Residential Tower in Jeopardy
Quote:
There could be trouble in the skies for the Winthrop Square Tower proposal in Boston. The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport), which operates Logan International Airport, has threatened to put the kibosh on current plans for the 775-foot tower, which would be the tallest residential building in New England. The development by Millennium Partners and Handel Architects would replace the Winthrop Square Garage with a soaring 55-storey tower.

Not trying to be mean but that vote happened months ago and doesn't stop the tower from being at risk of not being allowed. The approval that could kill it that it is waiting on now is the height approval from the FAA which would need to essentially give this building special permission to go about 25 feet higher than the height limit they place above the site it is located at in downtown Boston. Here is a link to the FAA page showing the proposed case for this building Winthrop Square tower proposed case page

It's been lowered to 702 feet (at the most):

Winthrop Square Garage tower chops height to comply with FAA regulations



Quote:
The FAA will now consider developer Millennium Partners’ proposal, which could take months and will include a public comment period.
I assume this means that the tower will be going through another redesign.
