Absolutely not the same building, but I really can't be outraged without knowing what kind of condition it was in before. At least there's still going to be an actual stone facade- something way too expensive to see in all-new construction these days.

I'm amazed this design made it through the historic district review. Nice that they saved the stone, but that Tremont St facade is rather odd given all the good design of its neighbors...

I knew some people who lived there around 2010 or 2011. It was not in great condition at all.

It's not in a historic district so no review.

I you already know the answer to that.

What a wasted opportunity with that beautiful puddingstone. Almost insulting... fk it, it is.

I guess the actual point of my smart-assed rhetorical question is that dog-shit solutions like this are far more threatening to the overall quality and character of our built environment than three "boring" office or apartment towers downtown.

If you live in the city and care about the look and feel of your neighborhood, get your ass to a community meeting and push back on this sort of nonsense.

Makes me absolutely sick. The puddingstone facades here are totally relegated to sideshows with the garbage office park tower mass dominating.

I do believe we preserve way too much run of the mill crap in this town that's "just old" and not special, but those buildings were a treasure.
