Re: Alexandra Hotel Renovation | 1769 Washington St | South End

My feeling on this is same for most of these things. It's better than letting it rot, which was probably the only other alternative.

I love this. I'd expect some opposition from some of the neighboring brownstones though.

I find the reference to Herzog & de Meuron's 40 Bond Street very appealing.

Re: Alexandra Hotel Renovation | 1769 Washington St | South End

Could be worse (right, it was). My only regret is that the exposed party wall on the front might look skanky, all in the interest of creating a specimen effect for the old hotel building.

Yes, that's a great project. But it isn't fair to show lovely precedents that the developer has no interest or finances to recreate. If they could afford that they wouldn't need the 12 stories.
