Everyone knows the Millennium Tower in Downtown Crossing is one of the most important buildings in Boston—and it's not even finished. All set to (perhaps) transform the surrounding area, the 685-foot spire will also alter the city's skyline as well as upend its luxury pricing. A massive deal, indeed. Yet, not all of the 442 residences in the tower are themselves massive. Sure, there are humungous penthouses. But there are more modest-sized units, too.
Above is the floorplan for an 821-square-foot unit in the Millennium Tower (click to enlarge), what developer Millennium Partners calls a "Grand Residence." Such residences will occupy the 34th through 55th floors of the 60-story building. One-bedrooms are starting at $895,000, so we can assume that the condo above is going for more than $1,000 a square foot, a tidy sum. Yet! This Millennial version of a micro-condo grants the buyer access to the full range of amenities the tower will offer, including a 24-hour concierge, a library, a game room, the largest residential fitness center in Boston, an outdoor terrace, an indoor junior Olympic lap pool (rendered at the top of this item), a private ballroom, a bar, and exclusive restaurant services overseen by star chef Michael Mina. Sometimes you don't buy the steak, you buy the sizzle.
And one more thing: The micro-est unit in the Millennium Tower is due to be 759 square feet; but a floorplan doesn't appear to be available for that. Use you imagination.
