Re: Ames Street Residence | 88 Ames Str. - Kendall Sq. | Cambridge

i'll stick my neck out; good one that could have, and maybe should have been a great one; It's well past the time for a residence tower pushing 450~480' with (of course) the same #of parking spaces. This was the time and place to do it.

I like this a lot. It has your general "Boston grey precast" cladding, but the way it is being used looks very good. This just goes to show that its not all about materials but how you use them.

^^^Great pics! This is really starting to show its height in the area. The sharp corner is especially welcome

The webcam seems to be having its issues, but they also shifted it up a tad. Holy moly to the skyline view!

Agreed. It's all about them strongly articulated verticals and horizontals.

So much better of a statement than the old Cambridge Center architecture it is glued onto.

Yea the vertical lines make this. None of that double din window crap either. On very short buildings it looks good like that lab in northpoint but on towers it looks horrendous. Bullet. Dodged.

It's a beautiful building that should have gone taller and become the crowned jewel of Cambridge.

Really should have. This design could have held its own as the tallest.

Isn't zoning for this location 300' for residential buildings? If so, that would have allowed for another 4 floors based off the current floor-to-ceiling height for residential levels in this building.

This thing is getting to be very visible from Storrow. It looks like it's going to be taller than the new building across the street (I dont/cant bother learning the names of the Kendall developments)?
