i haven't the slightest. idea where any big towers will get built. But Boston has a way of delivering the units, even if it entire new neighborhoods rise up in lock step and begin taking on the 'classic buzzcutt appearance.'

Maybe City Hall will go very aggressive in the West End, Fenway, JP and Mission Hill and deliver some height. Fighting fierce nimby opposition will occur on a different level.

Time will tell.
