Re: Boston East | 126 Border St | East Boston Waterfront

^ I really don't get what the architect was thinking with the opaque fin sidewalls on the balconies. I sort of get privacy (between only) the dual balconies, but everywhere else it is just a massive view and light obstructor. What a waste in a waterfront location.

Other than those crazy balconies (frankly, I like the outside wood-paneled look but they block out so much of the view/light/air circulation) , it's a fairly nice looking development. Thanks, Beeline, for the pic update!

Re: Boston East | 126 Border St | East Boston Waterfront

Is that an apartment building or is that a cheaply built suburban school from the 90s?

I'm glad that Eastie is getting all of this waterfront development but damn they all suck architecturally. It's such a beautiful location you'd think they could build something nicer.

Also all of these have an interesting lack of retail.

Portside at East Pier (existing and new phases), Eddy, and Clippership Wharf (u/c) all have retail. Is there a lot of it? No. But I think a case could be made that--aside from waterfront dining--there is not yet enough demand in the neighborhood to merit more retail at these peripheral locations. Retail is always the last thing to come in as a neighborhood gentrifies*.

(*I mean gentrify in the sense of income/value appreciation, not displacement of low- and middle-income residents. To Eastie's credit, I think the combination of new development, inclusionary zoning, NOAH, and others have done a good job of preventing widespread displacement)

Re: Boston East | 126 Border St | East Boston Waterfront

Anyway why isn't the CLF pushing for a harbor-walk here. I want to see the waterfront open to all, not just a sliver of it for a park, and not just for people who can afford the waterfront condos. A harbor-walk would be great, the Eastie waterfront has some of the best views of the city.

Re: Boston East | 126 Border St | East Boston Waterfront

The street side is a bit cheap looking but the rest has a great po-mo feel. I really like it.

Honestly more than a little surprised that this place can command upwards of $5K/mo (3br) in rent. Wow.
