“The Millennium Tower and Burnham Building project will be located at the partially vacant site of the former Filene’s Department Store in the block surrounded by Washington, Franklin, Hawley and Summer Streets in the Downtown Crossing area of downtown Boston. The Project includes approximately 1,185,000 square feet (sf) of space for residential, office, retail, restaurant, health club/spa and accessory uses in the rehabilitated Burnham Building and a to-be-constructed tower element (the Tower), together with approximately 550 parking spaces in a below-grade garage. To more appropriately preserve the Burnham Building, the Tower component will be constructed adjacent to, rather than cantilevered over, the Burnham Building, and will occupy a smaller footprint than the tower element of the Previously Approved Project. The Tower component is anticipated to include retail, restaurant and health club space on the lower floors, and residential space above. The Burnham Building component of the Project will include the rehabilitation of the building for primarily office and retail uses. The Project will restart the long stalled development at the Project Site, a delay that has left a hole in the urban fabric of Downtown Crossing. The Project will provide a number of benefits to the City, including construction and permanent jobs, tax revenue, new residents to this growing area, affordable housing, and preservation of a historic building, and will bring new vitality to the area. The preservation of the Burnham Building will highlight the history of Boston and the Downtown Crossing area, while the new Tower will showcase thefuture, a beacon on the city skyline.”

Millennium Tower has finally come to fruition in Boston’s downtown. After years, if not decades of anticipation, Millennium Tower is under construction. Nearly 70% of the inventory has already been pre-sold. Construction is slated for completion in 2016. Millennium Tower has 400 luxurious residences. The building will have two separate lobbies; the first will handle floors 1-20, the second will handle floors 21 – 40.
Millennium Tower will be located in Boston’s new hot neighborhood, the Financial District. New restaurants and condo buildings are gentrifying a neighborhood that just a few years ago was not considered to be a premium location. Now, many of Boston’s newest and most desired buildings have been built here over the past 5 years including Millennium Place, Millennium Tower and 45 Province.
