I finally got to see the new glass going up, and it looks great.

Will both the residential and office towers be taller than Nashua St. Residences?

Residential is apparently 496' (according to Odurandina but I think he's correct).
Office is 510'.
Nashua Street Residences is 449'.

It will be a greater than 10% increase in height for the immediate area.

Yea people thought this was boring but I liked it. The seaport makes us think we have glass boxes everywhere, but downtown doesnt even have 1. We also dont have a single black glass curtain wall tower. I personally think they look really classy. Something like a combo of what you posted and this would be perfectly fine with me. I hope the natural progression of VEing brings it back to this:







To me this is a perfectly fine no nonsense classy office tower. Pretty much filler but not in a its filler cuz its crap type of way. Filler because it looks good but doesnt scream anything type of way.

Vs this...

I'm sure the interior has already been all planned out, but surely they can find a home in some public space for this?

The future of the old Boston Garden scoreboard is uncertain. But its new owner is taking suggestions

Easy; inside the new practice facility.... provided there's enough clearance.

It should be somewhere more public I think.

The main entrance foyer off of Causeway Street seems like a really obvious spot.

As an added feature, maybe they could tie it to the existing scoreboard systems in the arena and show time and scores in real time?

These are a little old but they show how cool this will look from the Custom House tower observation deck. They were taken around the end of May.

^^^Those are good shots. The Garden really masks how tall this is, particularly the hotel portion. The residential will end up being the same size as the original Filenes tower proposal.

There's some precedence for this. Philips Arena in Atlanta has the scoreboard of The Omni (the arena it replaced) hanging in the main entrance. If I wasn't on the Commuter Rail's anemic wifi I'd link to a photo.

There's a good photo here (it's someone's blog so I'm not embedding).

And if the plan still includes tiling the entrance arcade to outline the old Garden floor plan, then hanging the scoreboard there would be perfect, even if it would be off-center from the original.

I was doodling the other day, and this one reminds me of the Hub on Causeway, in a good way:

The Grand Tetons over Jenny lake was a wash. Canon SX720 didn't come out of the bag).
