Winthrop Square Tower to Officially Break Ground Next Week
After years of planning the Winthrop Square Tower, now called Winthrop Center, will finally be moving forward with a groundbreaking set for next week. While demolition of the abandoned garage has been ongoing Millenium Partners finally gets the go-ahead to break ground as the City Council voted to appropriate the funds from the sale of the garage earlier this week.
The $102 million sale of the property was finalized earlier this month. Funds from the sale will go toward funding open spaces including $23 million to The Boston Common & Franklin Park and $11 million for completion of the Emerald Necklace.
The $1.35 billion tower will be Boston's 4th tallest building when complete at 691 feet and will include around 500 condominiums and around 750,000sf of office space.
