Re: The New Office Thread

I thought the same thing, but taking the Orange Line at Back Bay and getting off at Haymarket strikes me as more convenient than walking from Copley Place to 60 E. Berkeley, so if they're considering...

Re: The New Office Thread

It's not. That's why they'd have to wait a while.

Re: The New Office Thread

I wonder how soon they need the space. If they can wait a while the Government Center Garage tower could certainly accommodate them.

Re: Kenmore Square North

One thing Kenmore Square really needs is some monumental fountain or statue or something to focus the space. Here's one posibility: an obelisk of some sort. It would need to be taller than the Citgo...

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Excellent. A much better render than mine.



I think the "tumors" are pretty cool. They make the building suggest a sort of cactus.

I can only imagine how awesome this scene would be with 1 Bromfield in the picture.

Anyone with PhotoShop want to take a stab at it?

Re: The New Office Thread

More likely would be South Station tower, which is a lot closer to their Fort Point building.

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

Underwhelming. Looks like the Pier 4 office building and the Hub on Causeway office building had a bastard child. Really looks like an uninspired derivative of those two.

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

In addition to that it gave the building a definite vertical axis which helped to counteract its girth. This new version generally emphasizes layered horizontal lines, making it look even fatter than...

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

To me those extruded yellow boxes read as balconies, which makes the building seem to be four stories high. And I thought the previous design couldn't get any worse!

Thanks. I don't have an account at SSP so I can't ask the poster where he heard the news.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Can anyone confirm the rumor that Amazon has actually signed a deal for a million square feet in the Seaport? If it's been posted here I've missed it.

Re: 50 Liberty @ Fan Pier | 50 Liberty Drive | Seaport

John, I think you have that backwards. As far as I know 399 Congress started out as a hotel and is now apartments.

It actually doesn't look as monstrous as in the renderings. Looks kind of cool, in fact.

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

Thanks everyone. Glad you liked the pics. I think the Seaport has a lot more potential than people give it credit for.
