Handel Architects released a rendering of how the future Millennium Tower will change the face of Boston.
The $615 million building will include 600 residential units (both rentals and condos), up to 200,000 square feet of retail, 200,000 square feet of office space, restaurants, a health club and parking.
The site is zoned for up to 625 feet, so the tower could become the city's third tallest building behind the 790-foot Hancock Tower and the 750-foot Prudential Center.
The company has also promised to reconstruct the MBTA station on the corner of Franklin and Washington streets and build a small amphitheater for use by local musicians.
The construction is slated to begin in the middle of next year and those involved estimate that it could take about three years.
