Winthrop Center
- Jun 11, 2020

NPC FIled for Winthrop Center Cuts Number of Residential Units In a Notice of Project Change filed with the BPDA on June 10th, Millennium Partners has proposed additional changes to the Winthrop Center Tower which is under construction now. The changes include the elimination of the residential portion of the east tower (see rendering below). This cuts the number of residential units from 387 to 321 and these units will now initially be apartments instead of condos. The total building size will go down to 1.447M square feet with the office, and retail/connector space remaining the same. Per the letter, these changes are based on the "impacts to the project, the condominium market, capital markets, and the construction process caused by the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic."
