I've looked at several renderings of the grand entrance and I'm not sure, and I'd like to know, if the front of the grand entrance (I know the top of the entrance atrium is covered) is totally open to the elements or is just partially open to the elements. It looks totally open at this point in construction.

What does this have to do with a height fetish? It has more to do with NOT BEING DONE WITH EITHER BUILDING.

I don't remember seeing 1 Dalton put a flag and a tree up after taking 6 months to complete the first 6 floors. In fact, I have never seen this treatment in my life for a tower's podium.

+1

Also, Steve Adams is reporting (as of 6m ago) that the topping off is happening today.

Is it possible the transitions to the next phases are not going to be as seamless as we all had hoped for? If the same workers continue to lay more steel on top of these buildings without missing a beat, I agree it's a bit strange to hold a topping off ceremony now. I am just nervous there will be some period of time between the completion of these podiums and the start of the tower.

I think it doesn't even necessarily means that phase transition is not seamless, just that there IS a phase transition. They organized this in phases for a reason - they want the option to stop/delay if it makes sense to.

A construction project is an entity to itself, independent of the building that will stand there when construction ends. Building teams and management teams are formed and dissolved with each project. The 3 phases of this are related in that the are literally on top of each other and and will look like all one building when complete, but they aren't necessarily related programatically. The same workers, management, etc from Phase 1 may or may not work on Phase 2. Or they may. Clearly, Phase 1 - a construction project and a building in its own right - has passed a significant milestone. Cheers to them.

For what it's worth, Boston Properties announced their fourth quarter 2017 earnings yesterday. During the call, they apparently announced that they have started construction on the 440-unit residential phase of the project.

From looking at the webcam, they've definitely started the office tower also.

They are still adding steel above the podium. My guess is this is the final floor until we get some sort of announcement, but I honestly would have thought that about the last floor.

Tower to the left is residential. To the right is office.

Just want to second this for facts sake. This is an accurate description of phasing and I'll add that phasing also has budgetary/funding implications as well. Funding can be allocated by phase or contingent upon completion of phases. As stated, phases can even have entirely different teams.

So yes, they've topped out phase I as defined by the contract, so let them eat cake (and raise a tree).
