CAMBRIDGE / BOSTON Kendall Square Volpe Site 1,000-foot tower

Tops among the proposed changes to the Volpe site is a proposal to build a towering skyscraper. The planning board has discussed a 500-foot tower, while limiting other development at the site to 350 feet. But Cambridge City Councillor Leland Cheung has proposed rezoning to allow for a 1,000-foot tower. Comparatively, the 60-story John Hancock Tower — currently the tallest building in New England — tops out at just under 800 feet.
