The proposed project is for a 305-foot high tower with 94 residential units on the top 26 floors of the 3,648 square foot parcel at 533 Washington Street. With a modern glass and zinc tower on the 26 stories above the base, the architect and design will retain the existing four-story faade which will include restaurant and collaborate workspace uses.
A file documented with the Boston Redevelopment Authority stated, The project concept is for a tall, slender tower, featuring excellent interior light and sight lines, which will capitalize on and enhance the resurgence of the Downtown Crossing. The residential population of this area is now beginning to achieve a critical mass, and the project will contribute significantly to the emergence of a true, mixed-use downtown neighborhood.
Located at the former site of Felt, between the Boston Opera House and Suffolks Modern Theatre, this new development would be just minutes from the site of Millennium Tower, a luxury condominium development currently under construction.
