I'd like to see what it looks like as much as anyone else but there's nothing out of the ordinary about the lack of interior pictures. Itís not uncommon for high end property listings, especially those owned by relatively prominent/public individuals, to not include interior pictures. Iím sure theyíre available to qualified buyers' brokers.

Edited to add: From the listing ....

"Detailed marketing material to be distributed upon receipt of buyer pre qualification."

Thank God-- Our beloved ex-Mayor Menino gave Millennium Group that 15 Million in tax breaks. They sure needed it.

It's not a matter of 'need' They had the city over the barrel. They gave the city a choice, $15M or hole in the ground for next 20years+. Your Choice.

I don't like it either but I wanted that fucking hole filled in too.

Then why didn't the city just the tax breaks to Vornado's group Steven Roth in the first place?

It wasn't theirs to "give". It is private property.

What are you talking about Menino complained about given Vornado anytype of tax incentives to jump start the downtown project only to change his mind concerning when Millennium purchased the property off Vorando.
Looks to me that you have two different sets of rules for certain groups.

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

So I was playing around on Instagram today and found these.

Ever want to know what the view is from the window washing crane at the top of Millenium tower?
