Please have a look at Boston Properties new North Station development.
From the Boston Business Journal:
The Hub on Causeway’s office tower was originally approved to rise 420 feet and span 668,000 square feet. Boston Properties is seeking approval now to build a 24-story tower rising 495 feet at its highest occupiable point, spanning 651,500 square feet. The project’s architect is Gensler.
“The design team has made an effort to move away from a conventional glass clad tower,” the notice of project change filing states. “The overall massing of the building has been reshaped to respond not only to internal tenant needs but also to better integrate the structure with the scale and texture of its immediate surroundings.”
The North Station market is growing up. Yes, it is still home to The Garden, but with 2.5 million square feet of new developments, it is poised to rival any Boston submarket.
Unlike the Seaport, it offers a commuter rail hub in North Station, light rail service from the Green and Orange lines, and Interstate 93 – making it a commuter’s dream.
Banker&Tradesman reports, “by 2020, the addition of more than two and a half million square feet of new development promises to reshape the neighborhood with the inclusion of retail, office and hospitality developments…It will also include market-rate and middle-class housing, which will contribute to Boston Mayor Martin Walsh’s goal of creating 56,000 new units by 2030. Growth has been so explosive that the city is developing a North Station Area Mobility Action Plan to account for the thousands of commuters, residents, visitors and arena-goers that ebb and flow in and out of the area daily.”

They all won’t happen in this cycle, but it will be interesting to watch the Boston skyline evolve as projects come out of the ground.
From Banker & Tradesman:
Three office towers totaling 113 stories and nearly 2.5 million square feet, already bearing the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s stamp of approval, are to be built near the MBTA’s Haymarket, North and South stations.
The transit tower trend ratchets up with Boston Properties’ latest vision of a 1.3-million-square-foot development at Back Bay station, including a 26-story office tower. And the BRA is getting into the high-rise act as it seeks an “iconic” redevelopment up to 700 feet for its defunct Financial District garage at 115 Federal St.
