Making way for a tower

The Winthrop Square Garage is no more.

Demolition crews have been knocking down the shuttered Financial District garage at night over the last few weeks, readying the site for a skyscraper set to rise in its place.

Millennium Partners is paying to raze the garage — considered an architectural eyesore by many people — as part of its agreement with the Boston Planning & Development Agency to buy the property and build a 725-foot-tall office and condominium tower on the parcel. It hopes to break ground on the project next year.
