I can't wait to see this landscape of Houstonian desolation disappear.

Re: Parcel 24

I spoke with one for the workers -- unfortunately sounds like soil testing with no immediate plans to build.

Re: Parcel 24

but no doubt this counts toward the mayor's "$3.4 billion in projects under construction" claim.

Re: Parcel 24

Backhoe is on site and dirt is being moved around. Looks more substantial than the soil tests. I'll see what I can find out.

EDIT: They are digging around to identify where pilings will go.

Re: Parcel 24

Miranda Priestly's quote, "By all means, move at glacial pace, you know how that thrills me." certainly applies to this project! I mean, this thread began in 2007!! And it was being discussed by the BRA/developers two years before that!

Rebecca is working on several exciting projects; what's really fabulous, she tells us, is the construction start slated for next quarter of the $100M-plus Parcel 24 project in Chinatown. The 312-unit apartment development, years in the making, is a JV of the New Boston Fund and ACDC.

Re: One Greenway - Chinatown Parcel 24

The design is basic and seems to be in keeping with what's been going up recently. With the large affordable housing aspect to the project the will need to keep the design affordable as well. I'll be happy if it doesn't get Kensingtoned. Should go a long way to help knit Chinatown back together.

The render is clearly from the north, looking south down Surface Road. Those buildings in the background don't exist.

The project includes two buildings. I think that the only building in the background that doesn't exist is the second phase of the project.

Re: One Greenway - Chinatown Parcel 24

Hideous. I hate that glass (elevator?) spine. The color is all wrong - orange? Turn it back on its side and send it back to the Florida office park it came from.

Definitely not elevators, we don't waste window real-estate in Boston on elevators. It's just a glass corner, similar to 75 Ames. I'll bet the architect is actually Elkus.

I think that's probably the same terracotta used for 45 Province St

If my memory serves me correctly, it is Elkus.
