Downtown Crossing Project

Rising above the city and anchored by the renovated landmark Burnham Building at the corner of Washington and Summer Streets, the 53-story skyscraper, Millennium Tower, is the newest addition to Boston.

Such a historic, monumental construction project defies imagination because of the economies, technologies, politics and logistics involved. Gargantuan machinery, thousands of workers, engineering, trade unions and ingenuity brought together to assemble luxury retail and residential spaces for the city’s citizens who want to be at the apex of the action.

DowntownCrossingProject.photography documents this seminal change to Boston’s skyline. Photography records the innovations in design, changes in the neighborhood, diverse faces and fearless heroics of the men and women whose labors are reinvigorating the center of Boston. These photos were commissioned by Millennium Partners in order to record and honor their work.
