Mayor Thomas M. Menino’s administration granted a $7.8 million tax break to help with the $630 million redevelopement of the former Filene’s site in Downtown Crossing. The tax incentives will be spread over a 13-year period and will be passed along to retail and office tenants who agree to open on the property. Advertising firm Arnold Worldwide was first to sign on as a tenant. Roche Brothers Supermarkets also plans to open a store there. The complex includes offices, stores, and apartments. The original Filene’s storefront will also be restored and turned into usable retail and office space.
