This building has a serious case of multiple personality disorder. It was a joke before and now it's even more of a joke.

This is the architectural version of the google burger emoji controversy.

Yup. The cheese is in the wrong place. It is.

Co-working space provider Industrious and insurance software company Duck Creek Technologies have each leased approximately 30,000 square feet at the newly expanded Stillings Street Garage in Fort Point.

Re: Stillings Garage Expansion | 22 Boston Wharf Rd | Fort Point

I'm a bit confused, as I thought this whole thing was a garage. Are the 2 new floors all office? Are the top 2 floors that were there before also office?

Yes, office over garage.

Re: Stillings Garage Expansion | 22 Boston Wharf Rd | Fort Point

Thanks Beeline.

It's turning out 3x better than i expected.

Eminent and massive.

Also, a fine template for GE to copy on the path of their downward spiral.

Re: Stillings Garage Expansion | 22 Boston Wharf Rd | Fort Point

The ubiquitous metal cladding makes it look like a hospital, and puts it jarringly out of character with the adjacent fine old brick buildings.

An ugly building in my opinion.

Re: Stillings Garage Expansion | 22 Boston Wharf Rd | Fort Point

Are there strict rules against using attractive 'mill or old style' cladding?

Re: Stillings Garage Expansion | 22 Boston Wharf Rd | Fort Point

I'm not a fan, there is just way too much going on and each part is cheap. There should have been a cohesive design.

Enjoyed all your pics of the Seaport, thanks. Looks like you were out in the tail end of the storm.

It's not incredibly bad, but it still looks to me like a hospital. The VA hospital in Jamaica Plain is a similar style.
