Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

I must say I'm personally very impressed with how the development is living up to the 2017 renders, everything between photo 1 and render photo 2 match up perfectly. The last photo/render pair the obvious difference is the rather puke orange that we got instead of the more subdued redish orange and the switch from a see-through holy wall on the near side to a solid slab of metal wall instead, I believe that change was made to appease Amtrak's strict requirements on bridge crossings and stopping jumpers.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

Nice pictures and thanks for the recap with the renders. The building with the vertical fins came out really great on that side of it.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

Looking forward to seeing the renders for ISEC II. Approved for up to 14 stories. Hopefully it will take advantage of that.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

Here's a sneak peek at the ISEC 2 I found on payette's website



The red-glowing kidney is the existing building and the other one is ISEC phase 2.

The IMP mentioned going as high as 14 floors, so the top one seems closer to that. But in both there's an aesthetic that keeps with the existing bulbousness of the first engineering building.

Yes, I read the full article. LOI was sent 5/2 to BPDA, and the article ends saying NU intends to file a project notification form this month.

Nice find! Thanks for sharing the render--one was not included in the BizJournal article.

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

What's the tall building at the top of the render? Is that supposed to be the currently U/C dorm?

Re: Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

I recommend checking the bridge at night, the lights are already in and they look super nice.

Also, I sort of hated the ISEC I building because it seemed a little disjointed with two extremely unrelated parts; however, seeing the render for ISEC II puts it in a different context and I think it may grow on me. ISEC I also grew on me after seeing it on a nice day from Tremont through Cunard Street.
