Beton, I get it, the MM Garage is beautiful, the Dock Square Garage is not! But to say....bury the damn thing...or..we don't need garages...or...make it go away, it's not gonna happen. It ain't going away unless the city adds a huge sweetener (Magic alrealy alluded to this) for the developer and I don't think any of us see that happening. Anyway, I do see everyone's point about getting rid of the garage, it's awful. And we all have our unrealistic expectations from developers. Yours is...make it go away...mine is...bury the damn power poles around your property if you're gonna build a certain size building in the city.

Thanks for pointing that out. There was a mistake in the BPDA library listing and I wasn't sure which I posted. Here's the right one, I think:

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

For those interested in the cost of garages, Massport has published a RFQ for a new above ground garage for Terminal E with 2,000 spaces. No land acquisition cost, little/no demolition cost, no infrastructure relocation cost, no building on top. Cost per space is $47,500.

At first glance in the last presentation, I understood the facade to be terra cotta. I didn't look too much into it then, but I'm very pleased it is actually a metal facade. With that in mind, this really reminds me of some of the new and smaller buildings going up in London. Still though, I find this 10x worse than the original proposal.
