We've been pretty excited about the news of all the construction and projects here in Boston. Our last post briefly summarized some of the future projects in Boston and here's yet another one! Well...actually this one is an old project that was never completed, in fact it never truly began. Supposedly there are plans (which were originally revealed back in 2006) in place to build Boston's tallest tower. This would take the place of the John Hancock Tower as the tallest building in the city and in New England. At 1000 ft tall in the Financial District this building would most likely house plenty of offices and businesses looking for a change of real estate.
Entrepreneur, Steve Belkin, originally proposed these plans back in 2006 and was met with great praise from the entire city. Then in 2008 the plans just seemed to fall to the wayside as the economy took a dip. All of a sudden these plans appear to be back on track and and the developers are planning to continue with construction although there may be a reduction in the size of the project it is still expected to be about 20 stories taller than the Hancock Tower. No doubt that this is major news for the city.
I thought this was some fairly exciting news for the area and I just wanted to pass it along! Boston could really have a new look within the next 5 to 10 years!
