I'm pretty sure that was the Milner on Charles St South.

Future site for another back bay high rise in the works?
Cool. Maybe Marty + Boston Plans have the site eyed for a very tall tower.

Question - if the mid-town hotel site is selling for more than the One Dalton site, how does putting up a building half the size make financial sense? I of course understand that 1) its most likely a larger parcel, and 2) land values have gone up, but still. Its a 20% increase to lease the land to build a 300 footer?

Yes, PLUS the site is sufficiently long to hold a 300 + 600' easily.

Here's a spot where a *thin spire could ascend well above the occupied floors.


*neighbors already forming an army to stop it.

This will likely be a NIMBY war to remember.

I could see similar height to the apartments across Cumberland st and then a step up to a high rise towards mass ave. Especially since the spaceship building is already there mitigating new shadow impacts on the plaza.

Re: Midtown Hotel redevelopment | 220 Huntington Avenue | Back Bay

i (too) assumed it was over the line, and didn't want check to confirm.

That line needs to be moved a couple hundred feet over.
