Trans National Place
Location: 115 Federal St.
Height: up to 1,000 feet
The building project for this 1,000 foot tall skyscraper was put on hold in 2008 due to financial difficulties and objections from the FAA that the building’s height would interfere with airplanes taking off and landing at Logan Airport. Trans National Group owner Steve Belkin has renewed his efforts to construct the skyscraper, but it will likely have to be shorter than originally planned. The building plans also called for public parks on the ground level and on the rooftop. Its main usage will be for offices, according to Emporis.
The design pictured above is Renzo Piano’s initial design for the skyscraper. Piano is no longer part of the project, and no new designs have been released.
