Asside from the two parking garages (Midtown and MaineMed) nonthing currently in the works is over 6 stories. The last 6+ story building to go up was 665 Congress St. which was completed in early 2017.

The only planned 6+ story buildings right now are the future phases of the 58 Fore St. redevelopment, which are at least 5 years away, if they even get built at all.

There are a few "waiting in the wings" proposals for 10 + story projects but right now nothing concrete has come up (Cumberland Ave condo tower and Tim Soley's Canal Plaza tower)
