Hopefully they are speculating and throwing out a bad number, because if for some reason that lot is only able to be zoned for up to 400 feet it would be a travesty. Here are the heights of nearby buildings:

One Boston Place (2 blocks away) - 601 feet
One International Place (4 blocks away) - 600 feet
Two International Place (5 blocks away) - 538 feet
One Post Office Square (1 block away) - 525 feet
One Federal St (2 blocks away) - 520 feet
Exchange Place (1 block away) - 510 feet
60 State St (2 blocks away) - 509 feet
One Beacon Street (4 blocks away) - 505 feet
28 State St (2 blocks away) - 500 feet
33 Arch Street (2 blocks away) - 477 feet
225 Franklin (2 blocks away) - 477 feet

This lot should be zoned for at least 600 feet or as tall as the FAA would allow. A signature 650+ footer would be perfectly contextual.
