Boston’s Skyline is going to be completely different by 2020

 

The late news that the fresh out of the box new Millennium Tower in Downtown Crossing could get a mammoth neighbor at Washington and Bromfield avenues brings up the question about how the line-up of Boston’s tallest structures may look in a couple of years.

Truth be told, a modest bunch of arrivistes could overturn the Boston skyline from what it was in the 1980s. Here’s a guide of what could be the 10 tallest structures in Boston by 2020, given current proposition and development.
