In the background you can see the new location for the Cambridge Trust branch, to make way for the MIT East Campus buildings.

Yeah, It took half of the Sebastians. Which is funny, because Sebastians was advertising that something awesome was going to happen there for months...

and then it's a bank.

1 Dalton is my main girlfriend right now, but I think this project is my side chick. I really like this one.

How visible will this be from various points of Cambridge and from across the river? I forget how tall it is but isn't it going to be significantly taller than surrounding buildings?

And Czervik, I'm with ya - I'm surprised at how little discussion there is about this one on her but I think this thing is going to get a lot more attention on here pretty soon. Its amazing to see it go up on such a weird little parcel. Thx to folks keeping tabs on this one.

Edit - here's one old render from upthread - huge! I'm curious to know what it will look like from the esplanade.

I mentioned before but to me what I like about it is it seems like your run of the mill Boston white precast tower, except the proportions and the way they used the materials looks really good. Goes to show its not all about the materials but how you use them.
