PRINCETON, N.J. — The Millennium Tower, a luxurious condo-and-retailer tower in Boston, will incorporate Schöck Isokorb® structural thermal breaks in the terraces at the penthouse levels to ensure thermal comfort in the city’s tallest and most expensive residential building. The building is expected to be completed by summer of 2016.

The $680 million tower currently has 442 units for sale with prices starting at $850,000. The slender structure will contain 1.1 million square feet, with over 200,000 square feet of retail space at the base of the tower.

Upon completion in 2016, the 13,000-square-foot penthouse will be listed with a price tag of $37.5 million making the condo the most expensive in Boston to date.

The Millennium Tower design team was able to overcome concerns of thermal bridging with Schöck Isokorb at the concrete balcony of the terraces. Thermal bridging is a common phenomenon that occurs in concrete balconies and can lead to a significant loss in energy efficiency.

Schöck Isokorb provides insulation from the outdoors by breaking the thermal bridge. This ensures higher surface temperatures inside, avoiding condensation and mold which can lead to serious building deterioration and additional costs for renovation. The product eliminates the cold surface temperatures in buildings and helps increases a building’s energy efficiency and longevity.
