Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

Its great that this finally appears to be happening. Maybe the Copley Tower could be revived next.

Re: 75 Morrissey Boulevard | Dorchester

Woah, that's bold. I hope it happens, but I'm skeptical.

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

Modernist can be good (John Hancock Tower). Brutalist can also (rarely) be good (Christian Science Plaza). Most of it sucks though. And quite frankly, Boston has way too much of it; its almost...

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

Its unlikely that it will ever be altered because its a federal building, but it would be great it if was torn down/reclad. It’s the ugliest tower in the city, save for those ugly West End twins.

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

They should get rid of the lowrise portion of the JFK and put it up for development. Then build a new more compact lowrise portion at the base, surrounding the towers and fronting the street,...

Re: Rose Kennedy Greenway

Exactly what I was thinking. There was no saving most of those old buildings in any case. At least the expressway eventually went away. Otherwise, we would have been stuck with more 1 Federal...

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

That streetwall looks amazing. If only we could tear down the O'Neill building and get more like this.

Re: Flickr Finds

Early 80's was pretty much the pinnacle of ugliness for the downtown skyline, before some decent looking towers went up.

Re: Happy 100th Birthday, Paul Rudolph!

Good for him! That said, the Lindemann building is the worst building in Boston save for the Government Center garage, which is going away.

That cement piece of crap (LB) cant get torn down fast...

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

Walked past this today; pictures dont do it justice. There is a "wow!" factor when standing below it and looking up. It seems taller than it is due to being slender.

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

Some reasonably tall towers may be built over the pike eventually which may help link the skyline from some angles. Supertalls are unlikely though.

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

These towers will give The Garden more of a "big city" feel when they show it on tv during games.
