Re: Providence developments

The moment of truth is at 4:30. I voiced my opinion at the bottom of this article but am worried that Providence could be flushing its future down the drain if it can't support this development........

Re: Washington Village | Andrew Square | South Boston

According to the most recently logged document with the bpda this will have 3 towers over 200' but the tallest is only about 245'. (unless there are more recent doc's out there?) For some reason in...

Re: Providence developments

The tower was only a couple blocks from the biggest ones downtown. It would have brought foot traffic to that park and spurred infill development to close the gap back to downtown. Providence would...

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

Ugh it was such a shame that we lost that facade. The revised tower turned out much better than the original proposal at least, and is ushering in bolder projects than we were used to. Still, that...

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

It took forever to get out of the ground, but now seems to be growing at the standard ~1 floor per week pace. It just feels like it's nowhere because the tower needs to pass the 8 story garage...

Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

Yeah, I guess what we didn't know is it could have been bigger. But then wouldn't it have run afoul of the shadow on the parks rules?

Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

We already knew it was 310'. If there was a 370' proposal it wasn't ever rendered.

This is the type of treatment I would like to see in Kenmore Square, except on a notably larger scale.

Anybody else catch the flashing crane last night? This was shot in real time. It was doing this for hours.

Re: Hood Business Park | 480-570 Rutherford Avenue | Charlestown

The main change is that they shortened the tallest building in the development, as well as dumbed down the design (at least according to the massing). Visually, the project definitely just lost some...

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

They should tear the entire "West End" down. That crap doesn't belong in the heart of a major city.

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

The office tower is 510'. The height was listed in the revision. I posted the link quite a few pages back and don't have the patience to search for it now. I think the residential tower is 496'.
