The panels they used were different than these, but the also had really stupid window layouts and used different widths of "fake perspective" panels which ruined the whole effect.

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

I remember the poor reception, but there is also a tendency to trash every part of a project during construction before turning around and saying "oh, actually turned out pretty okay" when seeing the completed thing. I don't remember if the same thing happened over at Suffolk.

Either way, while I think these are a poor substitute for actual depth, it's better than nothing.

Looks like they are removing more of the garage.

It looks like these panels are legitimately textured, and not just faking it. Nice! I'm looking forward to it.

It's tough to tell from pics, but do the panels appear more metallic, or more concrete-ish?

This has promise...Regardless of the level of sublime, it is going to be additive to the area.
