Otherwise, the ramifications could lead to more big wins by the NIMBY's. This is why, more than ever, attention should be paid to the few remaining sites capable of the height they would have wanted here. (ie new tallest) For instance, Boston Properties probably could have gone 850' with the North Station residential. Hopefully some of those awful rental buildings in the West End get razed and we can have "Take 3" be our new skyline frontier.
