5 Tallest Residential Buildings | Boston

January 3rd, 2020

Over the last few years, Boston has seen a dramatic shift in the planning and construction of some of its tallest residential buildings. The increase in these buildings is a testament to Boston’s economic growth and development as a city. Here are the current and projected 5 tallest residential buildings in the city of Boston.

1. Winthrop Center

Winthrop Center 1.0

This skyscraper will be the tallest residential building, standing at 691 feet and having 53 floors, it is anticipated to be done on March 31st, 2022. The Winthrop Center will be located in the Financial District of Boston, MA. The Winthrop Center will include almost 400 condominiums and be the world’s largest Passive House Office Project meaning the building will “reduce energy consumption by 65% of the Boston Average” and “will reduce water use by 40% saving 1.8 million gallons of water per year”.

2. Millennium Tower

Millennium Tower 2

This residential building was completed on June 1st, 2016 and stands at an astonishing 685 feet. The Skyscraper has 60 floors and is located at Downtown Crossing. Millennium Tower places elevated attention towards residents’ customization. The Tower partnered with Christopher Peacock, a custom furniture and cabinet designer who worked with President Clinton, to personally handcraft your kitchen and bathroom. Furthermore, the Burnham Building is adjacent to the Millennium Tower and it serves as a retail space for the Millennium Tower residents to shop at stores such as Primark, Roche Bros, and Caffe Nero.

3. Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower

Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower is not complete yet; it is planned to be done by September 1st, 2020 but the building is architecturally topped out.

The residential tower will stand at 528 feet with 45 floors and be located in the West End of Boston. In total, this skyscraper will have 800+ residences and 200 hotel rooms. One of the tower’s strong points is it will have a total of over 1 million square feet of retail space use.
