- A judge's ruling this week created some uncertainty for a proposed skyscraper along Boston's waterfront. A Suffolk County Superior Court judge threw out zoning rules that would have allowed the 600-foot tower to go up. The 42-story glass tower would cost $1.2 billion and replace the existing Harbor Garage next to the aquarium. Now, the project, we do know, was first proposed to the city in January of 2020. A company spokesperson tells us developers are reviewing the ruling.
