I would move to a place like this, in a second. It’s everything I like.
New. Modern. Unique. Tall. With views.
A new condo skyscraper that would be the tallest residential perch ever seen in Boston would soar into the cityâ€™s skyline above historic South Station under a plan close to winning regulatory approval.
A dramatically revamped proposal for a tower above the train station would provide upper-floor condo buyers breathtaking views second only to the Back Bayâ€™s Prudential and Hancock towers.
The mid and lower floors would be rented out as offices.
The tower, proposed by Houston-based Hines, would rise 40 stories above the roughly eight-story South Station, its sleek Caesar Pelli glass and steel design topping all other skyscrapers in the Financial District.
Certainly, it won’t be cheap to live there. The market would appear to be those looking to live in places like the new Ritz-Carlton and the InterContinental, both nearby.
I think the developer will have no problem selling the condos.
