There is a gorgeous 12 foot high - by 20 foot long (ish) poster of an aerial photograph in one of Northeastern's buildings (Behrakis) depicting the campus and the city behind it...

That aerial shows just how big a project that it really is when compared to the 10 buildings on the opposite side of Boylston.

It never got that impression seeing the project from the ground.

Yeah -- the site is roughly 90 ft by 450, which is a hair under an acre, and by any standard that is big for a building. Let's hope the Boylston streetwall isn't dull or monotonous.

Two shots on the approach to Logan on Wednesday. It was the best I could do with the flat lighting.
