The tides of change are hitting Greater Boston as new development projects pop up everywhere from Seaport to TD Garden to Cleveland Circle. In this midst of all this, a new space marked for one such project has a number of competitors vying for the coveted area.

Winthrop Square in the Financial District will become home to a mega-tower, as Eater's sister site Curbed reported, and the proposals include plans for offices, co-working spaces, residences, and yes, restaurants, according to the Boston Business Journal.

A plan from Accordia Partners includes a 57th floor observatory restaurant a la Top of the Hub, as well as ample space for street-level restaurants to the tune of 5,300 square feet. Meanwhile, Millennium Partners (yes, the same ones behind the Millennium Tower) wants to bring "the best of retail and restaurants" to what they're calling an "urban room" that will be the central part of 12,750 square feet of public space, BBJ reported.

Trinity Financial also proposed an observatory-style restaurant for its 60-story project. Plans call for an 11,000-square-foot public observation deck on the 52nd floor, plus a restaurant, lounge, and bar. Additionally, Trinity plans to have a two-story public passageway between Winthrop Square and Federal Street, which would include a beer garden and two-level restaurant.
