111 Federal St. Promises To Boost Skyline



Quote:
Remember that gigantic tower slated late last decade for sites on Federal Street in the Financial District? The one stretching to 1,000 feet and designed by starchitect Renzo Piano? It's not gonna happen. But something damn near close might. The Globe's Casey Ross drops the news this morning that Steven Belkin, who controls sites at Nos. 115 and 133 Federal, has resurrected plans for what would be one of Boston's tallest buildings, period, as well as the second tallest of the new crop of spires popping up.

The 740-foot tower, to be called 111 Federal Street after the city-owned parking lot there, "would contain a wider range of uses, including a 300-room hotel, retail space, offices, and possibly 150 condominiums on the upper floors." Big caveat, though: Belkin hasn't made up his mind whether to include the condos—we think he will—and without those 111 Federal will stretch to 650 feet. If it goes to 740 feet, the tower will be the tallest of the new wave of towers being built.

Belkin would like to start construction next fall, and he told Ross that he's already in talks with an anchor tenant for the office space.


Renzo Piano's FAA-baiting, Mayor Menino-hating 1,000 ft. 115 Federal tower:

Caesar Pelli's One Congress Tower At Government Garage Revealed



Quote:
This rendering is of the base of the One Congress office tower proposed as part of the mammoth Government Center Garage redevelopment. It would be 528 feet and would also be designed by Pelli. While it's certainly a bold statement for the Boston skyline, it's nothing particularly groundbreaking for its architect.

Here Comes Twenty Two Liberty at Seaport's Fan Pier



Quote:
Another day, another topping-off of another residential building in Boston. This go-round it's for the 14-story luxury condo tower Twenty Two Liberty, part of the 21-acre, nine-block Seaport mega-development known as Fan Pier. The final iron beams were placed during an event on Thursday (photo above courtesy of the Fallon Company, Fan Pier's developer).

Without doubt Caesar Pelli is one of the best at the moment!

That Dudley Square project is fantastic, and I love its integration with that old facade!

I haven't seen anything comprehensive. Curbed Boston occasionally does them for specific things. http://boston.curbed.com/#

Construction underway for North Station apartments



Quote:
In Boston’s residential building boom, no developer has been busier than AvalonBay Communities Inc. It recently completed an apartment tower in the Back Bay and is developing another in the Theatre District. Other large projects are under construction in Cambridge and Somerville.

Now the company is launching its most ambitious project yet: a 38-story tower at North Station that will be the tallest among a new generation of apartment buildings in Boston. The $250 million complex, to be completed in 2017, will also include retail space in a new passageway between Nashua and Causeway streets.

The 415-foot building will be the first of several towers to rise around the TD Garden, where developers are planning a mix of new homes, restaurants, offices, and stores. On Monday, AvalonBay’s executives will gather with city officials to formally kick off construction, although work on the site has begun.
