The Millennium Tower sits at 60 stories high, making it the third tallest building in the city of Boston. What sets it apart from it’s counterparts, is its ability to fully integrate itself into the city and its residents. Situated in the heart of Downtown Crossing, the Tower has revitalized an area that had once been a popular destination for shoppers, but had since deteriorated over the decades. The building has attracted a variety of shops and services, which include Irish retailer Primark, Cafe Nero, and a 2-story Roche Brothers, all of which have enabled it to “mix sociably with its neighbors.” (Campbell, 2016)¹
During the planning stage of the Tower, the designers were careful to preserve a piece of the historic architecture that once sat in it’s place. On the Tower’s busiest corner (Washington and Summer), you can see a wing of the former Filene’s department store (listed in the National Register of Historic Places), now called the Burnham Building after the architect who designed it in 1912. Since it’s opening in 2016, The Millennium Tower has helped set the benchmark for effortless living in the city.
If you’ve been waiting for your moment to experience all the Millennium Tower and surrounding area has to offer, your opportunity awaits! This newly listed unit will allow you to rise with the bright morning light and wind down to stunning views of burnt ochre as the sun sets over the Charles River and Boston Commons. The 1,200 square foot unit features 2 sprawling bedrooms (one with an en-suite bathroom), and a beautiful open concept kitchen accented by Poggenpohl cabinetry, tiled back-splash, and a beverage center.
With a plethora of high-end amenities, which include: a 24/7 concierge, valet parking, and the largest resident-only gym in Boston (clocking in at 10,000 sq. feet!), you’ll have the luxury to spend more time however you value it most. Whether that time is spent doing laps in the junior Olympic pool, socializing in the plush resident lounge and restaurant, or enjoying one of Millennium Tower’s signature events offered by the building’s lifestyle programming, La Vie, you’ll quickly realize the Tower is more than a place to call home.
