A New York developer, Millennium Partners, has proposed constructing the third tallest building in the city of Boston, Millennium Tower, which will share its site with an existing Burnham building. The $615 million tower would be 606 feet tall (185 meters) and replaces a project that stalled years ago.
The original plan for the site, proposed by Vornado Real Estate, was not built due to financial problems. The initial version was 111 feet shorter (34 meters) than the new plan and housed 137 fewer apartments.
Handel Architects designed the glass skyscraper to sit next to an existing 1912 Daniel Burnham creation. The skyscraper will be built on the former site of Filene's department store, which was demolished in 2008.
Millennium Partners is also planning a large scale residential project in the city called Millennium Place. The company has built a series of projects in other major cities, including New York and San Francisco, according to local media.
The city of Boston has completed six tall buildings in the last decade.
