Clearly you don't know how things work in Boston. "Soon" is very relative. In this case, a tower hasn't even been proposed yet, has no tenant, and the use is unknown. The original structure also called for the demolition of a building next door, which is still standing.
The negativity is more about "being realistic". Something certainly might get built, but much more likely a 700'-800' tower at best, and Boston moves at a glacial pace with this stuff. I couldn't see this starting construction before 2014. This is all conjecture until the developer actually comes back with a serious proposal.
