Please change the title to BOSTON | Millennium Tower | 685 FT | 55 FLOORS

The updated height figure comes from the project's website and takes the tower's upper mechanical levels into account. Permitting documents in Boston only require heights to the highest occupied floor, hence the original 625' figure.

A new 200 meter building for Boston!

Who ever did the research for the script in the Burnham video on the site needs a spanking.

The World's Fair in Chicago was 1893, not 1883... And it drew over 27 million visitors, not 21 million. Just saying

Millennium Tower's Floor-Through Penthouse Asking $37.5M



Quote:
A condo taking up the entire top floor of the under-construction Millennium Tower in Downtown Crossing is being listed for a whopping $37,500,000. Needless to say (though we'll say it anyway) if it gets anywhere near that amount, it will constitute the biggest home sale, condo or otherwise, in Boston history.

The unit will infold over 13,000 square feet at the pinnacle of the planned 685-foot spire. It will also include a 2,500-square-foot deck and basically come as an unfinished shell for the monied buyer to mold.

To put the $37.5M listing price in perspective, bear in mind that the 26,000-square-foot Ames-Webster Mansion in Back Bay sold in March 2013 for $14,500,000. And a 6,829-square-foot penthouse at the Mandarin Oriental traded in June 2011 for $13,200,000 (that's the current Boston condo record). Moreover, the $37.5M asking is more than even what the most expensive mansion in the Greater Boston area is asking. The city's first $20,000,000 condo is, indeed, on the way.

Also noteworthy: So far contracts have been signed for 150 of Millennium Tower's 442 units. Prices range from $850,000 for a 759-square-foot 1-BR to 17 penthouses starting at $7,600,000 for a 3,300-square-foot one.

Lol, I just watched it myself. They show both Sullivan's Carson Pierre Scott building and HH Richardson's Marshall Field's Warehouse in Chicago when they say "Burnham built a magnificent collection of department stores". They don't even show the actual Marshall Fields flagship which was actually built by Burnham. What a mess, I can't imagine whoever made this had even the slightest knowledge of architectural history. It's as if they googled "department store Burnham Chicago" and the just inserted whatever images came up first in the Google image search.


Edit: Lol, I just googled "Burnham department store Chicago" and the results are almost entirely Carson Pierre Scott with a few images of the Marshall Fields warehouse mixed in. I have a feeling that's exactly the kind of "research" the makers of this video did.
