Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

I would imagine that by changing a few dozen units to condo's,

the developer can start paying back the loan sooner.

Nice. A piece of urbanity gets inserted into Government Center; chipping away at the beast little by little.

Yeah baby, Terminator 3:



Just the right tool to take down an ugly 60's urban renewal dinosaur.

What??? I think you replied to the wrong thread.

Anybody have an idea when this is supposed to get out of the ground? The speed has been excruciating. According to the FAA site this should have had the crane installed already.

Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

I'll take crap for this.... not gonna say why I'm mentioning it.

But speaking of the FAA.... Any recent FAA updates on the height?

i could be mistaken, but this could be going as high as 558'.

Minimum of 547' in any case.

It's a tall skinny-ish tower. All of these take a good bit of time before they get off of the ground. Look at how long 4 seasons took.

Nothing yet. I checked archives, proposed, interim, and determined cases.

From Twitter: Curtain Wall Mockups

Doesn't look too bad, though it will be interesting to see how this plays out across the whole building.

Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

Is this project moving slowly, or is it a complex foundation (aside from abutting the garage) in addition to me being impatient?
