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...

Nice. Just as the CSC tower is finishing up, this one is starting.

Re: Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Great pictures! This is the one that's going to "tie the room together".

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: Why is this building empty?

That sucks. This old building has character.

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.

Re: Residential Tower | 26 Court St. | Government Center

Modernist towers generally suck but I like 1 Boston Place. Its dark color adds something different to the skyline, and its not fat like 1 Beacon or 1 Federal.

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

This building changes the Back Bay skyline forever. All my life its been 2 spikes and all their little squat friends (111 Huntington is not quite tall enough to really change that).

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

This tower will continue what the Millennium Tower started - drawing your eyes away from the 60's/70's boxes. That alone makes it a win.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

According to the height limit map, 800' is allowed in some areas of downtown.

I remember years ago there's was talk of building a tower at the St Anthony's shrine on Arch St. That's the perfect...

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

I like this tower. That said, the downtown needs a peak, and this isn't it. 800' would do it. To some extent, aesthetics do matter.

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

It will probably be revived at some point. Winthrop Square disappeared for years, then came back in a different form.
