Millennium Tower Boston

Millennium Tower Boston is setting the bar high, creating a new level in standards for multi-use residential projects in Boston.
The luxury residential tower is rising 60-stories at 1 Franklin Street . Schӧck was on-site to provide guidance with installing Isokorb® structural thermal breaks in terrace slabs for each penthouse unit.

Street-level, the signs reads, “The City Rises from Here.”

Rising from the location of the former Filene’s Department Store, Millennium Tower Boston is providing luxury urban living in one of Boston’s most vibrant neighborhoods.

In return, the neighborhood has provided a warm welcome with 75% of the units sold in only seven months.

With a focus on energy conservation, architect Blake Middleton, FAIA of Handel Architects specified structural thermal breaks to be installed in the Millennium Tower terrace balconies of the penthouse levels 51 and 52. The Isokorb® installation also eliminates cold surface temperatures near the terraces, as well as increase the building’s energy efficiency and longevity.
