^ This is going to cripple the booming DFW tourism industry.

From a few weeks ago they were finishing up the relocation of one or two buildings and blasting. You can see them in the process of removing the blast shielding.

Concrete forms are up to the 2nd level now. This one is starting to move quickly.

Since it hasn't been posted:

No disagreement with your observation, but in fairness, this project is largely in support of a non-profit. I can live with it here, especially since the overall design seems pretty inoffensive.

That said, the luxury units next door at 1501 Comm. (The Lancaster) have pretty much the same facade, so that bugs me much more.

Re: Residences at Brighton Marine | 1465 Comm. Ave | Brighton

That's an impressive 2+5 massing honestly. Would do great with a classical detailing but then I saw the renders. Still this has gotta be one of the few 7-stories with wood construction. How many others are there in Boston?

Agreed. They did a nice job with the geometry. The angled bump-outs are a nice homage to the nearby historic Comm ave block-wide apartment houses, but the asymmetry gives it a contemporary flair. I agree I wish plans called for some more extensive detailing, but I sense the limited brickwork will look nice.

The code changed recently to allow 5 over 2, right? So I think we are going to be seeing a lot more like this.
