Nice pic I have a similar one from my trip up the prudential. Will be pretty cool with all those buildings completed and hopefully some big ones (250m +) scattered about too, just in time for when I come back in a few years! Whats the yellow crane at downtown crossing? Is that for that building opposite kennedys pub? Hows that one coming along?

-thanks to burislav for this pic.
To the right of the Hancock, the red crane is The Clarendon, at about 330'. To the right, over the highway will be The Columbus Center, at 400'. Then going up in the background all on the right side of JHT will be the W Hotel, about 310', the Residences at Kensington, about 300', then possibly 29 Kingston, 325'. Then you'll just be able to see SST over One Financial, as well as Russia Wharf just to the left, at 345'. On the left side of JHT will be One Franklin at 495', then 45 Province, the yellow crane, at 325'. Density!! I love it!
If you still don't get the message, it's this: (one of the best designed residential towers of Boston. fits in, yet still has modern design)

There hasn't been news on it in a while, and plans for the site have since shifted to low-rise development and parks. This high-rise plan hasn't been talked about since 2004.

Here's some more pics of the Mass General Hospital Building for the Third Century demolition of old buildings by me (sorry for the bad image quality, most are heavily zoomed and at night):











Seems like they're not recladding the brick buildings like I said earlier, but deconstructing them.







And a bonus shot from the other end of the parking garage where I took these pics:

New infill at Jackson Square, in the south side of Boston (border of Jamaica Plain and Roxbury, near the Jackson Square metro station)



EVERYTHING in beige here is new infill, creating tons of density in one of the less dense areas of Boston.

Copley Place to grow; 47-story tower planned over Neiman Marcus
March 20, 2008 12:25 PM

Copley Place owner Simon Property Group told Boston city officials today that it plans to expand the Neiman Marcus store and luxury shops there and build residential condominiums in a new, 47-story tower.

"The expansion of Neiman Marcus and the specialty shops will ensure the City of Boston's retail pre-eminence within the entire metropolitan region," Simon, based in Indianapolis, said in a press release.

The filing provides details of previously announced plans for Copley Place's final large structure.

The expansion will include a complete renovation of the 115,000-square-foot Neiman Marcus store and an addition of 54,000 square feet. An additional 60,000 square feet of expansion will include new retail shops and restaurant space and a "public winter garden," which will replace the existing Stuart Street plaza.

Residences will take the form of 300 luxury condominiums with 24-hour concierge service, plus a health facility, spa, and residents' library, Simon said.

The first four floors of the tower will be commercial and residential space, topped by 43 floors of residential. The 47-story tower will be slightly smaller than the 52-story Prudential Tower and the 60-story John Hancock Tower, both located nearby in the Back Bay.

Elkus|Manfredi Architects of Bostonis the design firm. The project is forecast to bring 250 new permanent jobs.

No additional parking space is to be built; the new tower is across the street from the MBTA's Back Bay Station.

Copley Place was built in the 1980s on air space over the Massachusetts Turnpike and on a former railroad yard. According to its website, the Back Bay shopping complex houses about 75 stores, including Barneys New York, Louis Vuitton, and Burberry.

Simon Property Group bills itself as the largest public US real estate company, with regional malls, outlet centers, lifestyle centers, and international properties.

It controls 257 million square feet in all.
(By Thomas C. Palmer, Globe staff)

No renderings as of yet. This will be built in the gap between the John Hancock and Prudential Towers.

52 floors, but it's much taller since it's an office tower with higher ceilings.

Columbus Center on hold

Pike tower plan stalls
Builder seeks 18-month delay
By Scott Van Voorhis
Friday, March 28, 2008


An $800 million luxury hotel and condo tower slated to be built on a deck over the Massachusetts Turnpike has hit another snag, this one potentially fatal.

The developers of Columbus Center, which would cover an ugly highway canyon between the Back Bay and South End, have halted work and are requesting a break for as long as 18 months in construction.

The project’s financial backers, which include multibillion-dollar California pension CalPERS, were ready to push ahead with construction of the $220 million-plus air-rights deck over the highway, said spokesman Alan Eisner.

But for the project to move forward, the state has to offer a guarantee of its own that $35 million in promised loan and grant assistance will also be coming through, he said.

So far, that hasn’t happened, prompting the Columbus Center development team, headed by Hub housing mogul Arther Winn, to step back, Eisner said.

The delay is just the latest for Columbus Center, first proposed 11 years ago and subject to years of regulatory reviews, community meetings and intense debate.

“In any other city, this would have been built and occupied right now,” said David Begelfer, head of the local chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties. “It will end up being a gem for the city. I would like the government to step forward and make this happen.”

However, officials at the Massachusetts Turnpike have not yet decided whether to grant the 18-month moratorium.

If so, Alan LeBovidge, the Turnpike’s executive director, indicated it would require another round of negotiations and stipulations to keep the project on track.

“I don’t want to be 200 years old by the time this one goes up,” he said.

Others want Columbus Center developers put on a much shorter leash.

State Rep. Marty Walz (D-Back Bay) contends a three-month moratorium would be more appropriate. If the developers can’t get their financial house in order, the project should be put out to bid again, she argued.

“They have had the development rights for this for over 10 years,” Walz said. “We need to be able to make a decision on whether they are going to be able to do this. We need to fish or cut bait on this project.”

Meanwhile, Patrick administration officials are not offering any guarantees yet on the $35 million the Columbus Center developers contend they need.

“No final decisions have been made on state funding,” said spokeswoman Kofi Jones.
