Construction Watch: Mapping Boston's Tallest New Residential Developments

Tom Acitelli

[The AVA Theater District under construction in April]
Boston is perhaps alone amongst America's grandest cities in its sizable reticence toward height (D.C. doesn't count because of that business with the Washington Monument). Witness the continuing kerfuffle over the Boston Harbor Garage redevelopment plans. A waterfront tower of 600 feet? "Madness!," some cry. Yet, here and there, at a pace not seen in perhaps a generation, taller sprouts are popping up around the city. Some are under construction; some are through the looking glass and readying their cranes. Herewith: All of Boston's new residential developments slated to be higher than 300 feet.
