BCDC design update. Stay with the brown terra cotta, please!

Also, have a look at those comments. "Tone down the building". "Oculus is too interesting." Yes, because we don't want our buildings to look interesting in Boston, no siree.

Not a big fan of the windowless chunk at the top.

I'm not a huge fan of brick colored terra cotta, but I wonder about the decision to change the color--it makes the building read more uniformly and therefor larger.

But generally, I think this is a great project and perfect for this area.

It's better than a bunch of exposed mechanical units. The screen could be a little more articulated though.

Oof. This one is a step backwards.

I actually like this way more than the other stuff that's been going up in the Fenway recently. This is far more sensitive to the surrounding urbanism both in scale and design.
