According to The Boston Globe, the re-imagined tower “of up to 740 feet…would be a new centerpiece on the city’s rapidly changing skyline…The building would occupy one of the last major development sites in the Financial District, replacing a decrepit city-owned parking garage at Winthrop Square with a skyscraper that could cost as much as $900 million to build.”
