Anyway. The other developable parcel that could be interesting is the Suffolk jail + associated parking lot (and Spaulding Rehab when that gets redeveloped)

^ Indeed. I'd also like to see some thought given to incorporating (and financing) the northern end of the NSRL through an air-rights project over the North Station tracks. Unlike South Station, there are no real height limits here.

The passion! but prolly be closer to 860' , and per NSRL, future train sheds etc, surely a long, protracted planning quandary.

as for 65 Martha' Version #2 for "The Big One"

Tower 1: 65 Martha Road; 66 stories.... occupied floor ~790'.... ~870' @ some type of spire tip (that we never got at the Hub or in Back Bay).

Tower 2; 675' not in the West End but, under-the-radar Downtown site

Tower 3, bldgs 4, 5 & 6 also not in the West End incl affordable housing component....

2.4M sq ft, ~$2.5B – City rakes the tax dollars for more affordable housing.

Disagree with him and his occasional idiotic Republican talking points all you like but tosh has it correct about height. For the health of the city, Boston needs to build as high as allowable by the FAA in the core of the city. That increases supply of both office space and residences and more critically maximizes tax revenue. NIMBY's need to be absolutely, completely and totally crushed as their isn't a functioning brain amongst any of them. I can't speak to the obsession over this particular building on Martha Rd but I do wonder why there are *any* surface parking lots left since underground parking was invented some time ago....

Given the proximity to BS&G, you wouldn’t think that would be necessary or economical.

Looks like a slurry tank to me.
