A new mayor doesnt mean anything when the real hurdle is the FAA...Something will go on that spot but a supertall would really surprise me.

One Greenway Breaks Ground



Quote:
CHINATOWN—The developers set a date and they stuck to it: "The Asian Community Development Corp. and the New Boston Fund broke ground this afternoon on One Greenway, the mixed-income development that will restore a section of Boston's Chinatown that was demolished in the 1960s to make way for the Southeast Expressway."

City's third tallest possibly built by 2017?


Pei Cobb Freed/ Cambridge 7 Associates

http://www.bostonglobe.com/business/2014/06/10/new-residential-tower-will-join-offices-boston-skyline/WVLKv4IqrgfCgq8ldup1kJ/story.html

Quote:
The $700 million project — next to the Christian Science Plaza — got a huge boost Tuesday when Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts said it will manage the hotel and residences in the building, promising to bring a new level of opulence to the already pricey Back Bay.

At 699 feet, the building will be the largest of a new generation of residential towers planned to shake up a skyline that has been the exclusive province of hedge funds, banks, and insurance companies. A 625-foot condominium tower is also under construction at the former Filene’s property. Other residential high-rises are planned at North Station, Copley Place, and Government Center.

Boston need more taller buildings especially in Back Bay Fenway area. I would love to see that happen. Boston needs to make it happen all things are possible. Boston stand tall and Strong!

Behold, the Newest Luxury Building Slated For the Greenway



Quote:
Add another luxury tower to the Rose Kennedy Greenway: Developer Boston Residential (clever) wants to build a 12-story condo building on India Street in the Financial District-North End borderlands.

As if anticipating the opposition that almost any development engenders in Boston, the developer stated in its initial filing with the city that any shadows cast by the mammoth 12-story spire would be limited to nearby streets and sidewalks. Moreover! It's 117-foot height is within the 120-foot zoning for that area known as the Town Cove. Quaint.

Back Bay Station Redo Could Come w/ Skyscraper on Top



Quote:
It's raining spires (or proposed spires) in downtown Boston. The latest? The folks behind the TD Garden towers want to plunk soaring buildings above Back Bay Station, one of the busiest stops on the T. In exchange, developer Boston Properties would revamp the station, making it less dudgeon-like and more mall-like.

Casey "Scoops" Ross at The Globe has the details: "The gray, recessed facade along Dartmouth would be pulled out to the sidewalk and encased in glass to create better retail storefronts. The interior station would receive a complete overhaul, restoring soot-covered architectural details and removing its old cages and turnstiles."

That's for the station (conceptualized in the image above). As for the two towers that Boston Properties would build atop it, at least one would be a skyscraper, height indeterminate, and together they would be a mix of residences and commercial space.
And from the Globe: http://www.bostonglobe.com/business/...FDP/story.html

Quote:
Boston Properties, among the city’s largest and most influential landlords, declined to elaborate on its private development plans for the skyscrapers it envisions on the property. Company executives have been exploring development options in the area since it purchased the Hancock Tower and its adjacent parking garage for $930 million in 2010.

Back Bay Station sits adjacent to the garage, so the deal with the Transportation Department would allow it to expand its footprint to construct multiple buildings in what is currently a dark corner of the neighborhood.

In addition to the Hancock, Boston Properties owns the Prudential Building and the crown-shaped tower at 111 Huntington Ave., and several other large commercial properties in Boston, Cambridge, and surrounding communities. It is working with Delaware North Cos., the owner of the TD Garden, on plans to build a towering, multitiered complex of buildings next to the Garden at North Station.

The exact size and design of any new buildings at Back Bay Station has yet to be determined. But at least one would be a high-rise that could significantly alter the city’s skyline. Other low to midrise buildings could be included in the project, significantly changing the corner of Clarendon and Stuart streets, and a large stretch of Dartmouth Street.

Any new buildings would need to be approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority. It would probably take several years to begin construction, due to the complications and high cost of building new structures above the Mass. Turnpike and multiple rail lines.

God knows that station needs the work! This is potentially exciting news. Hope it is in fact a skyscraper.
