Just looking at one picture I saw uncapped rebar, trip hazards, and fall hazards with gaps in the fall protection.

Tishman Speyer is the developer. Turner is the GC. Honestly surprised to see those OSHA violations from Turner. Worked with them on a number of projects and they do great work.

I just went thru safety training and having with them over at 60 Binney. Agreed, they are really a safety first at all costs kind of group.

It appears that anyone looking to work or live at Pier 4 may have to move in slow motion at all times. Definitely a change of pace.

Re: Pier 4 Office Tower | 140 Northern Ave | Seaport

Holy hell that was a FREAKING GOLD MINE of a video. Imagine if they do that for all projects from here on out. You can just delete this entire forum at that point because theres pretty much no need for it anymore if this is where were headed. Slightly sarcastic but slightly not. I don't even know, that was amazing.





























The seaport is officially not fuckin around anymore. Remember too there is still like 70% left of land area to build on. Im talking moving from the water all the way past gillette down to first street, wrapping around and over to the channel, back up to meet the harbor and around again to parcel K. If they keep moving forward/progressing at the rate they are now this may become just as good as the other beloved neighborhoods in Boston just in a modern way. There WILL be a library, grocery store, general amenities...etc at some point. This neighborhood is going to be THE go to spot when you want to head to a modern neighborhood on an easy to use street grid, with insane amounts of dining, retail, waterfront options. Lets get some more parks that you can actually play soccer, baseball, basketball, and its a wrap. Transit is still the glaring issue of the area, but they seem to be figuring out the rest. The M parcels are going to be incredible and those are coming soon also.

Remember too there was nothing here before. They didn't west end this place. They took a bunch of parking lots and are turning it into a gleaming beautiful neighborhood that is connected to the waterfront. I've said it before but I'll say it again. The north end, beacon hill, back bay...all of the great neighborhoods we all love will still be there once this is built. We will still have those charming places we all know and love. Now we will also have a modern area to go as well when you just want to shop your face off and be surrounded by modern architecture and streets that are flat, new, and gridded. This is a huge win for Boston for these reasons. The Boston as we know it isn't going anywhere. But were also getting another brand new downtown right next to the old one and there is nothing wrong with that.

Seriously though, that little problem we had at one point of not being able to retain talent after students graduate college, is going to evaporate very quickly. The entire city is really turning the corner, and this is another huge piece of that puzzle. You think James Henderson the 3rd is going to turn down that view in that last picture when he graduates from Harvard to work in some 20th floor office in a tower in midtown Manhattan built in 1986 surrounded by 400 other towers 50 feet away from his window. I don't.


Side note: That video is a must watch on full screen. The screenshots don't do it justice at all.

I've been saying it for a long time, the Seaport is truly shaping up into something amazing.

Ha, it looks like she is enjoying a glass of morning wine at home before heading into the office next door.

Yeah I'm reasonably confident that is a not-possible sun angle (northern exposure over the harbor).

but yeah otherwise pretty freaking rad

I believe she's at the terrace on the top of the office building. If you look at the aerial photo looking down at the office building/residential building, she's standing the lower left rooftop area of the office building, the same area where the plant wall is located. You just can't see her from the angle shown.

But we agree that she is getting tanked before work, right?
