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.

Turns out that 200 Clarendon (also known as the Hancock) will in any case be the tallest commercial complex in the area. So we can say that the Pru may never again be the second-tallest. 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.

 

1.) 200 Clarendon

The tower for formerly known as the John Hancock is one of the tallest commercial buildings in New England. It is 790 feet high. There are no plans to make changes to this building till date.

2.) Winthrop Square Tower

ACCORDIAPARTNERS-3A_1_.0.0

There are a few proposals to redevelop the city-claimed Winthrop Square Garage; and the city is very inclined on seeing it redeveloped. At the least, three proposition suggest a 750-foot tower at the site, and one requires a 780-footer. These towers would probably be a blend of private and business.

3.) Prudential Center Tower

prudential-skywalk-2.0.0

The 52-story, 749-foot high rise was finished in 1964, and is New England’s second-tallest building as of now. Square shaped and dull, it has its drawbacks, however it does standout majestically in the Boston skyline.

4.) Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences One Dalton Street

18616-62761.0.0.jpeg

The 699-foot condominium and lodging tower is under development and is required to be done one year from now. The majority of the purchasers of its 180 extravagance units are supposed to be local people.

5.) Millennium Tower

The 685-foot apartment suite tower that is definition of the meaning of expensive in Boston is projected to open this year. Its top-floor penthouse, the one asking $37,500,000, is now under contract. That is the thing that we mean by “overturning.”

6.) One Bromfield

Nothing’s concluded yet, and something has been on the planning phase for this project for around 10 years.

7.) South Station Tower
