Surface parking for a 3 story office building. Sad!

Totally true. If this was proposed in Burlington or Waltham, the towns would probably ask them to make it bigger.

I must say that the final design looks much better than some of the earlier renderings.

It's worth noting that this is directly under the flight path for airplanes taking off and landing at Logan - 3 floors is better than nothing!

Re: Innovation Square (iSQ) | 6 Tide St. | Seaport

any speculation as to why they didn't incorporate underground parking into the design? too costly?

Re: Innovation Square (iSQ) | 6 Tide St. | Seaport

Screen grabs from the video:










Maan Im tellin ya some of these buildings in the seaport have amaaaaazing views. I love these ones especially where your looking directly out over the harbor and can watch boats coming and going and planes flying right overhead while your working. Cant lie Im jealous of whoever gets to work in some of these buildings.

There is no way you'll get those kind of views from a three story building.

Any street retail? Would be nice to bring some weekend traffic down to this area.

Not that it is a big deal, but this is a four story building, not three as has been stated in many of the prior posts.

There are literately no other building around this. The views may be a bit off in the renders, but I don't doubt them, particularly the one facing the airport.

You can see the ground outside the pic. It looks like what id imagine 40' above that to look like.

You can see over the roof of the world trade center in these renderings. This is pushing the limits of reality here.

Re: Innovation Square (iSQ) | 6 Tide St. | Seaport

It is embellished but your still going to have a great view of the harbor and airport. Yu dont have to be high up to have good views, just need to be unobstructed with something good to look at. Id be very happy to have this view.

The first post shows this to be pretty high quality for a low rise office building as well.
