Re: The St Regis Residences (former Whiskey Priest site) | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

It's been over a month since my last post and I see little or no progress. Is there a problem, AGAIN?



Looks like concrete has been poured between the old sheet pillings and the new ones. Can I assume this is part of the foundation (?)

Given the unique nature of the site, I would expect this one to be slow until it gets at least one floor above ground level.

Absolutely, I believe the schedule is 12 months underground and 12 months to finish.

There are VERY few people here each day. Some days the site sits quiet and locked. Today only about 5 people working.

Weird.

2nd that. I only see a few guys there in the AM but certainly aren't working like the Echelon guys across the street.

Moriarty is apparently the construction manager, so it is not as if its a general contractor from elsewhere who is new to Boston.

Could be that design / construction issues have arisen, or the cost has escalated. The footprint for this building is quite small, so there isn't much margin for absorbing increased costs.

Yes, I'm also VERY surprised at how small the footprint is now that things are set up a bit. Did anyone else feel like it's a smaller than expected footprint?

I usually feel the same way about a footprint until I actually see the building take form. Perhaps the massive footprint of the Echelon across the street skews the perception a bit as well.

Beelines photo shows the views that 150 will have all the way down Seaport Blvsd. to FiDi. 150 cantilevers over the existing sidewalk so well clear of 100 Pier 4 for City views.
