Re: Forecaster Building Addition |121-127 Portland Street | West End

The Boxer Hotel right down the street from this got a similar treatment that came out infinitely better. I wish they could've gotten whoever did the Boxer to do this.

This thing makes that row house in Fenway with the construction trailers atop of it look good. That's an achievement.

I think you could be right. It wouldn't surprise if there was not enough performance bond to cover the issues/problems with the first contractor. Plus probably another year of interest on the construction financing.

Whatever gets built to the right of the blank wall may hide the various sins of omission and commission.

I see they decided to crown a masterful example of historical preservation with a Sears vinyl siding motif. Brilliance.

Not only an achievement, a monument! That thing should be on a duckboat tour.

Seriously though, that has a sense of personality at least albeit a post apocalyptic dystonia nightmare personality.

The forcaster is just lazy lazy lazy.
