Re: Open Thread

Well, let me see if I can be of help. Of course, not everyone will fall in love with certain place. FWIW, I feel the same way about Chicago that you do about Montreal. Love is a visceral thing that...

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

How is any of this even possible - permits and approvals aside - the building can't be anywhere near the construction document phase in design?

Re: Open Thread

I think Toronto definitely suffers a bit from the effects of foreign buyers purchasing condos and using them as speculative developments or pied a terres, leaving units empty for much of the year.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

Tower crane being installed this morning. I snapped a pic on my phone. I’ll try to upload it by the end of the weekend, provided somebody doesn’t beat me to it.

Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

Those pictures are from March/early April as evidenced by the snow on the ground, un-foliated trees.

Unfortunately the site is not easily visible from the street so it is hard to see where they...

Re: Lovejoy Wharf | 131 Beverly Street | West End

I did a quick glance at the suffolk deeds Website. Looks like 42 unit deeds have been filed, about 27 percent sell through. Obviously, this doesn't take into account any units that may be under...

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Glancing at Bee Line's picture and the Web cam....is it possible that the residential phase is going to be cast-in-place concrete and that we are seeing the forms for the first floor being built?

Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

FWIW...based on some of the Tweets they posted during the demolition process, they have a tendency to post pictures that are actually a week or two behind real time. No way of knowing for sure, but...

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

OMG....this project has not been approved. It is only in the application phase. NOTHING HAS BEEN APPROVED.

There is likely another 12 to 16 months - perhaps more - of hearings, meetings,...

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Noticed the same exact thing....that vertical beam is definitely higher than the full podium level as depicted in the renderings.

Re: Waterside Place 1B | 505 Congress Street | Seaport

Just an update....I walked by this site today. Construction fencing is up and there is a large "Suffolk" construction sign on the fencing.

This seems to be poised to get started.

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Just an update. It looks like a mat-slab foundation was poured yesterday and there is rebar being staged on the newly poured floor.

A surprising development....it seems a third crane is about to...

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

This is pure conjecture on my part, but here is my prediction based on what we have seen so far and what I can see via the Webcam.

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Via the Webcam, looks like the climbing form for the core on the second tower is being dismantled.

Not sure what to make of that as the core is currently taller than the phase 1 podium for this...
