A look at the proposed Copley Place Tower
Mayor Menino is trying to develop the South Boston waterfront.
The project attracted controversy recently when Boston state representatives Marty Walz and Byron Rushing accused Governor Deval Patricks administration of violating a 1997 agreement by signing a revised lease with the developer before city and state regulators could review its impacts on area residents.
The firm has not said when it hopes to start construction. It still needs approval from the Boston Redevelopment Authority and state environmental regulators before work could begin.
