I definitely remember reading a story that this is back in planning/selecting a new developer.

Re: Proposed But Never Built

It would be amazing if that happened along with 12-15 on the other side. Throw in the almost done development at 0 Kneeland, and the parcels by Reggie's Park and the entire run there is really getting stitched up/back together from the highways. All that would remain would be the ~4ish blocks from Castle Square over to the old Herald site. If all the rest of these actually get done (and profitably) this cycle, I would think it would give a nice blueprint to get those last couple covered and finally knit things back together.

^^Someone said the tower in the render already looks dated.
My GOD; if only this could have gotten built and looked dated....
i imagine we've all heard someone say 'the Pru looks dated.'
LOL. So does MOSES.
You know, the guy who led Israel out of the Desert.
