The Hole in the Heart of Boston Is Now Scraping the Sky

Millennium Tower has risen at the old Filene's site in Boston:


Originally planned for 38 stories, the project ran out of money during the Great Recession leaving a big hole in Downtown Crossing. The new tower has 60 floors with 442 condos priced at $990,000 and up.

The 60th floor 13,000 sq. ft. penthouse reportedly went for $33,000,000. Still available for $9,450,000 on the 59th floor is a 3,435 sq. ft. condo with 3 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a family room, and a terrace. Or with $4,700,000 you could settle for 1,781 sq. ft. on the 56th floor with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a library.

These Millennium towers are popping up all over the place. The relatively modest 15-story Millennium Place just down Washington street from the new tower was completed in 2013. And a 58-story Millennium Tower opened in 2009 in the South of Market district in downtown San Francisco. That one is sinking and leaning.

Today, the metals most utilized in industry include aluminum, brass, copper, gold, iron, nickel, silver, magnesium, tin, titanium and various grades of steel. Honing machines are used to enhance the form of a particular floor by producing a precision floor on the steel piece through scrubbing with a grinding Fingerprint Door Lock wheel in a managed path. Grinders are instruments which might be} used to process materials by grinding or crushing them into smaller items. Power shears are used to cut steel sheets more quickly and with restricted manual effort.
