Millenium Tower and Burnham Building
Large-scale downtown development
The construction of Millennium Tower and renovation of the adjacent Burnham Building will help reinvigorate Downtown Crossing as the thriving commercial center of Boston. The mixed-use project will include 450 condominiums, more than 135,000 square feet of retail space and 200,000 square feet of office space. Though Millennium Tower is not fully contained within the CBD School-Franklin Urban Renewal area, urban renewal tools have been instrumental to its successful development. The BRA was able to use its urban renewal authority to exercise a confirmatory taking of part of the site so that it could be used by the Millennium Partners development team as a staging area during construction.
