PNF for 144 Addison:

Renders on p.42. This gets a resounding "um... no. Try again." from me.

Re: East Boston Developments

The brick part seems like it could be pretty nice, but whatever that paneling is, the corrugated stuff...nah.

If you want a bit of a summary, an equivalent article was posted on Universal Hub's website: http://www.universalhub.com/2018/pro...would-be-built

I like it. The twist on the brick rowhouse in front is modern & clean. I also think the corrugated metal on the back will look pretty nice and give that facade some depth.

Re: East Boston Developments

If it is indeed corrugated metal, it's at least consistent with the other buildings along Addison Street and Rt. 1A (i.e. industrial, warehouse). Combined with the other materials, I think this'll be a cool spot. Helpful marketing-wise that it's immediately next door to a Planet Fitness.

Re: East Boston Developments

Too "tower in the park" for my liking. Or rather "Row house in the park".

I don't see a good place to include one in this development, but in general I always want projects on large parcels like this to be forced to build new connecting streets. We could be mandating a walkable street grid, instead of ending up with large swaths of private land that look unwelcoming to pass through for nonresidents.

First project in my neighborhood (Orient Heights) that I can think of where the developer actually hired an architect. Other proposals further up Saratoga Street are absolute rubbish.

Agreed on the industrial vibe, and the contextual scale. The juxtaposition of new construction bordering public housing and a busy stree lined with multi-family homes will be...interesting.

I get my sweat on at that particular Planet Fitness; the folks who can fork over the loot to live here might find the gritty urban vibe of this location not to their taste.

Agreed, this could and should have a third building. Too low density for that amount of land.
