BOSTON | South Station | 677 FT | 49 FLOORS

The South Station development will consist of the completion of the
South Station Transportation Center at the lower levels of the project, plus the addition of a 49-story, 970,000-square-foot office tower, a 155-unit residential condominium and 200-room hotel building, a 525,000-square-foot office building, and parking for approximately 755 cars.

In addition to its emphasis on sustainable design, important considerations in the master plan were the preservation of the historic South Station train station building; the linkage of the existing train station and bus terminal; and the ability to facilitate the future expansion of the train station.

With commencement of construction anticipated in early 2017, South Station is destined to become a future landmark in Boston.

The plan to plunk a 677-foot, 49-story tower atop South Station, along with two other squatter buildings, appears to be moving forward. Houston-based developer Hines has a new financial backer and has been meeting with city as well as state officials about the project, which dates way back to 1991 and which once included a 759-foot tower in its proposal.

Part of the movement on the 677-foot plan is that Hines' development rights for the site expire in April 2017. Coincidentally (we imagine), the firm's website clearly says it plans to start construction above South Station early next year.

The main tower would instantly become one of the 10 tallest in Boston—in New England, really—and would join a forest of newer spires, including One Dalton, Millennium Tower, and the big-time addition to the Copley Place mall.
