Re: Motor Mart Tower | 201 Stuart Str. | Park Sq | Boston

Agreed 100%. I wish SST had ground level from in front of South Station because the proportions are weird in the render but the view is 20 stories up. We have no idea what it will actually look like from the view people will actually see.

Edit: damnit this started a new page...

Wow, it got even better. That's what a building should look like.

I like this version best as well. Put a modest cornice at the top that alludes (but doesn't parrot) the garage and "dress" the balconies and this'll be a winner.

^^^ Hadn't thought of that...Yes!
Or at least put some kind of simple triangular finials at the top of each of the "pilasters" to echo the triangles atop the garage cornice.
It would be great to see this square begin to reach its potential. Now about that brick mediocrity...

I think I'm warming up to this. At least these architects are trying to jive with the old building.

Agreed. It's really handsome and a new way of looking at the vertical addition--it's going to be really striking.
