I don't have any renderings but I remember a few more:

The W Hotel
The theatre district development near the Shubert
The Kensington
What about North Point?

It is about time somebody started a Boston thread on this forum. Boston actually has its own site called That is why there are not many Boston forumers on this site.

Nearby Archstone smith

115 winthrop sq proposed 1000' to roof

galaca Feb 13, 2007 4:01 AM

Wow! Boston has some great projects going up! :tup:

Shasta Feb 13, 2007 3:33 PM

Wow. That Shubert development will be very skinny! That lot is so small.

I am also surprised by the W Hotel. I always thought it was rumored to be going into the surface lot where Avery St. dead ends (near the new Ritz). Glad I am wrong as it will be in a much more visible location.

ChunkyMonkey Feb 23, 2007 2:48 PM

That's the first time I've seen the Filene's proposal. Can't say I like it. It looks somewhat boxy and dated.

Also, can't forget the Apple store.

Scruffy Apr 16, 2007 4:55 PM

the filenes building looks like the super blocks built in NYC in the 60s and 70s.

Coldrsx Apr 18, 2007 11:53 PM

some great small and medium sized infill.

TheBostonBoy Apr 21, 2007 1:22 AM

TheBostonBoy Apr 21, 2007 4:09 PM

nomarandlee May 12, 2007 11:40 PM

Wow, didn't realise all the great stuff going up in Boston. Lots of good projects.

An interesting comment considering Winthrop Square is 1000', the SST is over 600' and a number are over 400' including Filenes and Russia Wharf.

ChunkyMonkey Jun 11, 2007 2:33 PM

The following all under construction.

1330 Boylston

A small but wonderful redevelopment project of the Paramount Theatre

303 Third Street, Kendall Square

MFA Expansion

BUs Level 4 biolab in the South End

And Boston's new mosque in Roxbury

JBoston Jun 12, 2007 10:04 PM

Great stuff, thanks guys! I'm really excited about the Filene's building, however I think that Winthrop Square is obnoxious and ugly. It will completely ruin the skyline. I would love to see it around South Station instead.
