Strolling through the Public Gardens toward the Waterfront on a mild summer evening, the most captivating structure in sight is the Millennium Tower. Perched 685 feet in the sky, the 60-story tower will top off as the tallest residential skyscraper in Boston. The rendering from the $37.5 million, 60th floor penthouse showcases a panorama of the Custom House Tower with a waterfront backdrop below— a poetic nod to the first skyscraper to grace the city skyline. Developers dispatched a drone to help the potential buyer of the 13,000-square-foot grand penthouse wrap their head around just how jaw dropping their views of Boston would be. A successful tactic given that it is has since gone down as the priciest home sale in the city’s history.
“The evolution of luxury residential living is here,” says Millennium Partners. The unimaginably well-coiffed residents of the Millennium Tower will enjoy the ultimate in amenities: James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Mina’s closed-to-the-public restaurant; private dining service including “cooking classes, video demonstrations from Mina and a private screening room, where the chefs will prepare special ‘tailgate’ menus on game days;” the crème de la crème of concierge; and of course, valet parking for those who have yet to subscribe to the Uber black SUV rage. To cater to the clientele who are accustomed to pampering, residents will also have access to a customized training program based on three pillars — mind, body, and nutrition — offering access to trainers, massage therapists, nutritionists, yoga and Pilates. Modern-day “assisted living” at its best.
The Millennium Tower promises to be Boston’s most unique and iconic property. Luring us in with a slightly more ostentatious glow than the once famously lantern-lit, 174-foot spire of Old North Church, the tallest structure in Boston until 1810. Growing by two floors a week, the Millennium Tower is the symbol of the modern-day race to the top. A residential experience carefully attuned to the cosmopolitan desires of those racing to the top. Seducing private jet-riding dignitaries with penthouse luxuries fit for a king. With whispers of royalty securing the highest perch money can buy— and money is, of course, no object— the Millennium Tower oozes modern-day Boston.
