I think you need to give them time. There have only been about four recent buildings. What, do you expect the neighborhood to be completely transformed overnight?

The facades also not close to its final form. Still another layer to go that will completely change how this one looks.

Re: Harvard SEC (Science & Engineering Complex) | Western Ave | Allston

So ...buildings are starting to be more and more like clothing on bodies. What I mean by that is that underneath every fancy coat ... there is a very naked body. The "skin" part of the building is the thing that is doing the work of keeping the building warm/dry/quiet/useful. The layer we "see" is the pretty stuff. It is the clothing that can be pretty much anything from brick/stone/wood/metal panel (gasp)/ or a number of other things.

A building like THIS going to look great because it is essentially wearing lace (expensive lace at that). The outer layer will be semi transparent and will show off some of the skin.

What I am trying to say is that this is going to be sexy.
