Re: Best New Development Vote

Once again, I rested my decision on urban planning, rather than architectural grounds.

I think 1330 Boylston does more for its neighborhood as one building than any of the others could claim - even 303 Third, which will help Kendall in the long run but which, for the moment, stands dreadfully alone. FP3 is by far the best architecturally, but it's a really limited intervention.

Re: Best New Development Vote

Yeah this was a hard one. I had to go with Battery Wharf tho. 303 would have been my #2.

Re: Best New Development Vote

FP3 was my favorite building, but I'm going with CZ's thinking and voting 1330 because of what it (hopefully) will do for the Fenway neighborhood (it's also a nice building).
