It's great how the new towers are making the Longfellow buildings look so much less prominent.

Re: The Ropewalk | 5th Street | Charlestown Navy Yard

Great building (I second the love shown to granite block facades) that I'm glad to see preserved. That said, this projects suffers from two handicaps: location and unit configuration. Rte 1 looming overhead and 4-lane Chelsea Street just beyond an iron fence? I can feel the exhaust-induced headaches now. Secondly, original unit configuration planned for 35 3-bedrooms but 34 were axed when the windows proved too small for bedroom codes. So we're left with one actual family-sized unit and a bunch of single professional and flat-share units, which the city has in increasing abundance. Why not just make it offices, or innovation space, or whatever they call it now?
