Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

Overall I like how the varied massing gives the impression that this is a cluster of buildings, and the Miami tower will grow on me. That said, the low rise with the white string courses is awful, just pure uninspired schlock, like the designer lost a bet.

Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

This sticks out even from Berkley and Columbus at the top of the south end which is cool. I like the white, maybe just for being different.

Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

The white looks good to me. It looks...white. Most white buildings here look off white or have a crappy texture. I think this looks real good and all of the different parts work well together including the surrounding buildings.

Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

This is the first time I've wandered into this thread and I'm pleasantly surprised. This looks like a good project overall and the white tower appears to be well executed. Offset window alignments could be hit or miss but it works well here, IMO. The gingerbread house icing on the short buildings are a bit much, but that may be about it.

Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

I was a hater until I saw it in person, just passed on the train and I like it. The white is cool, it sort of reminds me of a pristine lavatory, or a futurized MGH building, or something out of Clockwork Orange.

I don't think that low rise portion with the white trim is part of this project. But agreed, I really like how this came out. It's not a stunner but its certainly not bad either.

It's an homage to Symphony Towers.
