The Manhattanization of Boston real estate continues unabated. Latest case in point: Tishman Speyer, one of Gotham's biggest developers and landlords (think Rockefeller Center and the Chrysler Building) plan to build a pair of towers on the former site of Anthony's Pier 4 on the waterfront.
Casey Ross at the Globe has the scoop: "Its 13-story office building is being designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects of Boston. Tishman Speyer has hired the architectural firm Diller Scofidio & Renfro of New York to design its condominium building. The nine-story structure will contain 100 luxury units and be designed to make a 'dramatic statement' on the waterfront." It's, of course, not Pier 4's first development rodeo: The 21-story, 359-unit 100 Pier 4 apartment complex is expected to open this year. Nor is it Tishman Speyer's first rodeo: The firm owns the office buildings One Federal Street and 125 High Street in Boston. This is, however, its first development in Boston. Things are still in flux pending various approvals, so stay tuned.
