Boston Neighborhoods Compared on Curbed

The battle between downtown crossing and Fenway could well be decided by the new construction going on! Millennium Towers is bringing back to life downtown crossing. The hope is that there will be life after 5 PM. It will certainly be amazing to watch the transformation of the hole in the ground where the old Filene’s building was to the 60 story tower consisting of 450 Luxury condominiums, and 196 square feet of retail space. Roche Brothers is planning to take up 30,000 square feet of that space, and plans to open next year.

Curbed’s analysis of Downtown Crossing, included the following:

Downtown Crossing was perhaps the region’s changing-est neighborhood of 2013, and that because of four (we think) syllables: Millennium. First, there was the grand groundbreaking for Millennium Tower (see photo), the soaring filler for the old Filene’s site. Then there was the official opening for Millennium Place, the luxury condo complex that’s almost entirely sold out. Such doings were notable enough on their own, but it’s what they portend that really counts: a rejuvenation of Downtown Crossing into the kind of neighborhood that folks don’t scamper away from after 5 PM. We’ll have to wait and see if it really happens, of course, but, if it does, we’ll know that 2013 was the year it all started.
