The development firm taking control of the former Filene’s property in downtown Boston said it will build a tower of up to 600 feet, rivaling the tallest buildings in the district and creating a new magnet for shoppers, diners, and residents.

It would be taller and more slender than the previous structure proposed for the site, a 39-story building that stalled in the early stages of construction.
