Waterworks at chestnut hill update.

I was going to bring my camera to work today, but completely forgot. Had to use my crappy cell came, but i think it gives a general idea. I can bring my camera if anyone is interested. Anyways, heres some pics of the waterworks at chestnut hill. Construction looks to be nearing end on the newest brown building, as well as the white, and the brown small building. Looks like work hasn't even started on the large brown old building though with the tower though. After seeing the new building in person, compared to what i thought it was going to look like, i am disapointed. It is very bland and boring. Anyways....

Yeah I live pretty close by so I've checked it out a couple of times. Fortunately, the original Waterworks buildings have been preserved, but I agree, the new building is a big disappointment.

They've been restoring exterior of the Service Station for at least the last year. It looks really great now. Its so white compared to how it use to be.
