Towering over the Back Bay

A proposed 33-story tower would replace the old Boston Common Hotel & Conference Center at 40 Trinity Place, just a block or two away from Copley Square.

And, yes, it would be “glass covered.” What’s up with all the new glass-covered buildings these days? Don’t they have any other materials? They don’t have to be red brick. Just something different for a change. But we digress.

The important thing: The $225 million complex would include 220 hotel rooms, conference-meeting space and … 220 luxury condos. Yes, condos. They’re back.

Some neighbors are already expressing concerns about shadows extending from the proposed tower onto Copley Plaza.
