Unique facade to Boston. In a time where everything “nice” defaults to glass this is great to see.

I walked by it today. It had been going at a steady pace but was now ahead of where I expected to be. I am very hopeful about that cladding but it takes a few rows of them to start getting a better feel for what it will look like. This might end up as one of the best looking towers in the city.

Very impressive cladding, and it looks like it is moving upwards quickly. I'm there every day, and the progress is very noticeable.

Yea this has kinda been overshadowed by the office tower, but this is gonna be a stunner.

Cladding is now finished on two contiguous floors (on one side, anyway):

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

Are those windows small or is it just the cladding below the windows is larger than normal due to it being the floor above the lobby?

High quality facades and good proportions seems to be the new norm thankfully.

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

It appears that it was just a small fire caused by a malfunctioning electric heater: https://whdh.com/news/fire-crews-bat...arking-garage/

Hopefully this won't cause much of a pause in construction.
