^That is no longer the design. The most recent one is in Post 195, but that was also rejected so we don't have a final design of this at the moment.

we have another major design update for what could be final changes.....

Looks really good...

Compare it to 3 months ago.....

Way more New York-ish!!

Joe Larkin and Architect Stephen M haven't just listened to our suggestions.; They've DONE our suggestions. Joe was kind of pissed. But, now he's done it. This is insane.

We now have a world class '2-Tower' design. Combined with MT..... it's sort of a multi-peaked, miniature version of Hudson Yards – something i wouldn't have dreamed just a few years ago.

Just need Millennium Partners to buy the block at 1 Bromfield St and build that.... get SST and the Harbor Garage up, and the Downtown area will be f__ing incredible.

No-longer a faux sky bridge – but an actual sky bridge!

Yes build it.

Knocking the 2nd tower peak down from iconic height back to the plateau is a bit sad. We need more tall, slender features to balance out and enhance the appearance of our no-nonsense office buildings, and continue to create a serious, expansive Financial District. This was a mistake, imo.

Early site prep had been going on at a measured pace over the summer, but the last permitting documents
and $100M passed hands at City Hall on this Thursday. But full mobilization for construction had been
underway all morning. By the looks of the site, you can see they're quite well along.

This thread is pretty old! Many people outside Boston construction scene won't find it easy to appreciate the
difficulty in navigating the rough waters that brought us to this day. The FAA, Great Recession, bidding process,
unhinged activists, shadow laws, and sorting the benefits package, and final permitting. Joe Larkin is well
deserving of praise for his dedication to finding the right mix of benefits, and working with the stakeholders....

Joe Larkin and his architect team of Blake Middleton, Gary Handel and Stephen Matkovits have done
an outstanding job. You're seeing the result of extreme design challenges for a very difficult parcel work
with high demands for robust public benefits--all come together ....It runs under the FAA envelope--but,
with they removed about a floor or two extra taken down to reduce shadows over Boston Common and
all but eliminate them over the Public Garden and Comm Ave Mall. ...The twin tower design doesn't overwhelm
the parcel. The result will appear from most vantage points, as two distinct towers.

Likely: all told, none-other than Joe Larkin could have pulled this off, or at least brought us to this day this
soon. They stood on the fence about splitting the towers. Of course a few smart folks helped push them to the
finish line with the Boston Civic Design Commission.

Boston’s Winthrop Square Tower to Proceed After City Council Approval

Quote:
Boston, United States – 24 October 2018

With the Boston City Council’s final vote, the more than decade-long debate over how to develop the former Winthrop Square garage ended the week of October 15, 2018. Just after the approval vote, developer Millennium Partners announced the Winthrop Square project will break ground on October 24, concluding a dispute that extended through two mayoral administrations and the yearlong demolition of the original structure.

In the conclusion of an offer first made in 2016, the city council sold the parking garage to the developer for $105.4 million, where the company has announced its plan to construct a high-rise tower at the 1.15-acre (4,654-square-meter) site between Federal and Devonshire streets. The planning process for the site experienced several delays, due in part to its prime location in downtown Boston, as well as questions surrounding how the city would spend the multi-million-dollar payout from the sale.

But the most contentious aspect of the tower’s plans involved its shadow — given its height and location, the project was expected to cast a large shadow over the Boston Common and Public Garden for up to 90 minutes on some days. A local ordinance prohibits new construction that would cast shadows on either area, but accommodations were made to allow the project to go ahead.

The developer plans on building a 691-foot (210.5-meter) mixed-use building dubbed Winthrop Center for an estimated $1.3 billion. The company has organized a groundbreaking ceremony, which is expected to feature Mayor Walsh as a guest of honor.

Plans for the high-rise include room for around 500 condo units and 750,000 square feet (69,677 square meters) of office space, with an estimated completion date of 2022.
