Actually, the lower balconies will have aviation wire instead of glass, better than solid metal panels I guess but why?

Thankfully, you are right and I was wrong about this. Just noticed the wire that has replaced the metal panels this past weekend.

Re: Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

This is a minor detail that most people would not notice nor care, but I thought that there was supposedly some effort to make the street lamps in Seaport more consistent and uniform (and classy) like the examples below. The ones that they put up next to Pier 4 look... flimsy

I disagree, the shielding on these looks to be much better

Once you get to that part of the water, the streetlights change to the green ones they used. It's like that all the way down around World Trade Center, etc.

I agree they should have kept them uniform.
