Copley Place owner Simon Property Group Inc. is moving ahead with plans to remake the Back Bay skyline with a 47-story condo tower that will also expand the upscale mall’s footprint.The mall owner, in a proposal filed yesterday with City Hall, details plans for nearly 800,000 square feet of new residential and Retail space at the corner of Dartmouth and Stuart streets.
Along with 280 high-rise condos, Simon is also banking on a significant expansion of Copley Place.
The proposal calls for adding 54,000 square feet to the existing 115,000-square-foot Neiman Marcus store, which would be renovated as well. Another 60,000 square feet of retail would be added beyond that, including space for a restaurant and a winter garden.
The condo tower will include a health club, luxury day spa, library and concierge service.
The project will enhance the urban fabric of the neighborhood and be a striking addition to the city’s skyline, said Carl Dieterle, executive vice president for urban development at Simon, in a statement.
