After signing up Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts to manage its planned new Back Bay tower, the developer, Carpenter and Company, now says it expects to start construction on the $700 million project later this year.
The 60-story skyscraper, located next to the famous Christian Science complex, would be the third tallest building in Boston, after the Prudential Center and Hancock Tower, which, btw, was designed by the same Pei Cobb designers who are now designing the Carpenter complex. Cambridge Seven Associates is also involved in the design
Besides a 211-room hotel, the tower will ultimately house 180 “ultra high-end condos.” Did you expect anything else?
