Mildly surprised no one has nominated 45 Stuart Street. As a reminder, it looks like a box of wet cardboard that was crudely decapitated.

It doesn't look so bad next to the Kensington.

Zinc, for sure.

Also worth noting I feel like this building is way oversized. Never looks close to full at night when lights are on (or off for that matter).

Plus the floorplans are named after inventors

That blue thing on Mass ave between Harvard and Central. I looked for a while and couldn't find a photo. Anyone else hate it enough to help me find one?
