Boston regulators on Wednesday approved construction of a 625-foot residential tower, an adjacent office building, and an outdoor amphitheater on the former Filene’s property in Downtown Crossing. The $620 million project will establish a new center of gravity on the city’s skyline and on its downtown streets, where long vacant storefronts will be replaced with an array of new retail shops and restaurants.
