As you may have already heard about or wondered about over the past seven or eight years, there is construction and rebuilding happening at the site of the old Filene's on Washington Street here in Boston. What you may not know are the details of the project and this week's big announcement regarding the newest Boston development. After years of being on hold it was announced that a new developer, Millennium Partners, will be taking over the project and building a 600 foot tower, on track to become the fourth tallest building in Boston.
The Burnham Building, Filene's original store, will also be incorporated into the modern building. The company plans to restore the building and keep the history as a part of the site. This doesn't mean that there won't be major changes however! The group plans on also including a 525 car underground parking garage and 500 units. This new plan is several stories taller than the original developer had in their plans, but now Millennium Partners, also the developer of the Ritz Carlton, has stepped in and they're not looking back. Look out for these condos on the market in the next few years!
