The word “dynamic” always comes to mind with this glass.

Re: Millennium Tower (Filene's) -Discussion and Photo Thread

Detailed render of old proposal. You can zoom in a lot and get a real good idea of the detail of the project. Looks like the crown was lit white which was a win, hidden full length balconies, the Burnham building is integrated into the base level. Also looks to have a huge amount of retail and I can see a 2 story gym on like the 5th and 6th floors and what looks to be a massive restaurant above that. No car caul-de-sac out front, but no stair T head house either, just a glass canopy. It has cut outs running the length of the facade giving it depth that looks good. I think the Filenes building in this render is not as good at ground level as it came out in real life.

Please don't delete this its right at the upper limit of whats considered acceptable and its a high quality render of a piece of history on the site. Its wide but not tall so the 3k sounds worse than it is seeing its not 3k on both sides its only 1990 pixels tall so the rectangular shape makes it not ridiculous but sound bad if you only look at the 3k wide which when you expand it isn't bad and is pretty much perfect.

That render narrowed a bit would be perfect tower rising at Landmark Ctr,

w/ the lower building nicely-preserved.

The quintessential, and best, angle of this building.
