I just want to add 40 Trinity Place which is 400 feet to the roof and looks to be about 430 feet to the top of the roof. This is under review for final approval following the removal of all on site parking spaces in the proposed building.



The residential tower at Gov't Center will be 519 feet to the roof. Prep work has officially started to prepare the parking garage on site to have the tower built.

New information and an initial filing for the project change has been released by the developer Midwood Investment.

59-Story Downtown Crossing Residential Tower Plans Revealed

Quote:
A New York City developer has unveiled plans for a 59-story, 607,000-square-foot skyscraper in Boston’s Downtown Crossing that would contain 473 condominiums and apartments.
Midwood Investment & Development has been briefing neighborhood and business organizations on the project as it prepares to submit a formal filing with the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) within two weeks.
Architectural renderings show a broad first-floor retail podium narrowing to a slender residential tower, according to Sam Tyler, president of the Boston Municipal Research Bureau, who attended one of the presentations. The tower would include 300 market-rate apartments, 119 condos and 54 affordable units on-site, Tyler said. The project would also include 234 parking spaces.
No renderings have been publicly released; however, I am expecting that some will be released soon. It sounds like this tower is likely to reach between 660 and 700 feet.

Some background;

The Harbor Garage continues to spoil the aesthetic of one of America's truly magnificent urban neighborhoods...


[/URL]

Pretty bad isn't it.

After the garage is redeveloped, we'll see 50% that cement gone....
This is what 55% site coverage looks like; the actual project will be 50%
You combine it with the front entrance patches + Imax GONE, and now you've created almost as much green space as the playing field of Fenway Park.


[/URL]


Like Copley Square, the City, State and BRA consider Long Wharf a national monument. That means no new shade before the 23rd of October. So Don Chiofaro's tower must be located at the south end of the Garage parcel, with a north/south orientation similar to the JHT.

The shade restrictions dictate the roof's extreme angle of pitch.
On the ground, visibility to the harbor is horizontal. If a tower gets built 14 stories or 54 stories, at street level, the view of the waterfront and harbor running back up Milk and India Street/s is the same.

If you walk to the end of Milk Street, you notice the nice patch of green at Central Wharf... Recall that the tower will be located on ths south side of the parcel – leaving this side as open space. So, now you see it; With this plan, the Greenway would segue onto an aggregate large park.... but most-importantly, the Harbor now opens completely in the background welcoming the pedestrian from the historical district.

This is why the single tower idea works.

Placing the lawn on the north end of the Garage parcel reveals a nearly shocking result. We're almost there....

Next, you use one section of Milk Street adjacent to the Garage as it's new access ramp, and the remainder as a fire lane for the Aquarium, or simply put all of Milk St around the loop in front of the Aquarium below grade and all the parcels are united. Checking off the space of the IMAX Theatre's footprint, reveals the full potential of the site.

Mr. Chiofaro, the City and the Commonwealth can create a large, uninterrupted space nearly out of thin air at the front of Central Wharf, the Harborwalk and Aquarium.

New York or SF are still a better example/comparison for Toronto I think but there is a ton of activity so I could be wrong. The caveat though is that a lot of it is shorter because of limitations caused by the airport. For example there are currently 4 buildings under construction in the Seaport district but because one of Logan Airports runways points straight at them they will max out at 250' tall. On the other hand some major skyline altering towers are either in pre construction prep work or are in various stages of construction from being almost complete to just having started.

These diagrams show most of what is proposed and under construction but it is missing three of the projects in the seaport district two of which will reach 250' and the other which will be around 150-200' and it is also missing the newest proposal for a 680 to 700 foot tower at 1 Bromfield St. There is another proposal missing which is located in front of the Boston Common it would reach about 300 feet.

Hyatt Boston Harbor view of what Boston might look like in a few years w/ South Station Tower, 1 Financial, 111 Federal, Millennium Tower, and 1 Bromfield, added...
(and GCG towers increased slightly to correct scale).

i gotta darken the lights on DST/1 Financial and then brighten SST a bit. 'll repost it later.

Not really. It and the US Postal facility redevelopment are both stuck in limbo.

The website for the South Station Tower was recently updated and says construction will begin in early 2017 but no official press release has occurred so the conclusion on archboston was to wait and see as it is unclear how likely it actually is to be built.

No problem up until today though it appeared that desertpunk was correct in saying it was totally stalled.
