Boston officials approve long-delayed work on Filene’s site

After a four-year work stoppage, the star-crossed Filene’s redevelopment is finally poised to move forward.

Boston regulators Thursday approved construction of a 625-foot residential tower, and the restoration of the original Filene’s building into offices and stores. The $620 million project also includes the renovation of a neighboring park that will add a new MBTA station entrance and an outdoor amphitheater.
