It's no surprise Winthrop Center is at the top of the list after Millennium Partners filed a Notice of Project Change to cut down the number of residential units once again. This new filing would reduce the number of residences in the mixed-use project 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.  Learn More >>>
