Trans National Place, also known as 115 Winthrop Square, is a supertall skyscraper proposed for construction in Boston, Massachusetts. The building was designed by architect Renzo Piano, but Piano later left the project in March 2007. [ [http://www.businessweek.com/innovate/content/apr2007/id20070410_205253.htm?chan=innovation_architecture_top+stories "Boston Won't Get a Piano"] ] If completed, Trans National Place would stand as the tallest building in Boston, Massachusetts, and New England, surpassing the 60-story John Hancock Tower by 15 stories and at least 210 feet (64 meters) to become the tallest building in the city. The developer is local businessman Steve Belkin, who also owns an adjoining mid-rise building, which would be torn down.

Although an official height has not yet been released, the building is expected to have 75 floors and a roof height of approximately 1,000 feet (304.8 meters), with a spire extending the building's total height to around 1,175 feet (358.1 meters). The tower's design also incorporates a rooftop garden, park, and observation deck entitled "Lookout Garden".

However, on May 15, 2008, the Federal Aviation Administration objected to the the building's proposed height, deeming the structure a possible flight obstruction to the air traffic of nearby Logan International Airport.cite web|url=http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2008/05/16/1000_feet_too_tall_for_hub_tower_faa_rules/|title=1,000 feet too tall for Hub tower, FAA rules|author=Palmer, Thomas C. Jr.|accessdate=2008-05-31|date=2008-05-16|publisher=The Boston Globe] Although plans for a 1,000–foot (352 m) skyscraper have not yet officially been abandoned, it is possible that Belkin will develop a new design with a height range closer to that of the 790–foot (241 m) John Hancock Tower in Boston's Back Bay.

Construction was originally scheduled to begin in 2008, with the opening taking place in 2011. [cite web|url=http://www.boston.com/news/globe/magazine/special_projects/2007/futureofboston/in_10_years?mode=PF|title=In 10 years You Will Be Able to...|author first=Doug|author last=Most|accessdate=2007-09-03|publisher=The Boston Globe Magazine] However, given the FAA's recent objection to Trans National Place's proposed height, the tower's construction process has been stalled.
