    Pier 4 Condo Building (Former Anthony's site) | Seaport

    The shadow play by the balconies is effective at adding texture to the building. Really well done by SHoP.

    Gables Seaport (née Waterside Place 1B) | 505 Congress Street | Seaport

    Yes, this one has been a pleasant surprise. I'd like to see how the street level wraps up but this is worlds better than its older sibling down the street.

    Seaport Square Block N | 350 Summer Street | Seaport

    I love love love the design here (and its fraternal twin across the staircase) but the loss of the cultural/arts center is really shitty. I really hope the city tightens the screws- I might be wrong here, but I feel the area is running out of space to support such an amenity.

    The New Retail Thread

    Yikes. I fully expected Doyle's to outlive me, and I'm under 30. Pour one out.

    Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

    It does! I can see it peeking out above 501 Boylston/the New England Mutual Life Insurance Building from Huntington at the Christian Science Center.

    The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

    XenForo Update

    That's what I've been doing in the meantime, but I feel like I'm missing posts. The "Jump to New" button has been somewhat inconsistent for me and I just want to make sure I'm caught up.

    XenForo Update

    Each topic on the subforum pages used to have a button that would take me to the last unread post, which I used frequently. I'm not sure if I'm just missing it here, but if that feature is currently absent and could be added back in, it would be a big help. Thanks!

    Future Skyline

    As some of you might've seen, I've started dabbling in building massing models in Sketchup and placing them in Google Earth. The skyline is very important to me and I like being able to visualize what it might look like in a couple of years (or five years... or ten...) Anyways, I've done the...

    Trans National Redesign - The "Boston Obelisk"

    Hey, all! With the discussion ongoing as to the future of Trans National Place development, I decided to take matters into my own hands for a bit. On the development thread, some discussion had been going around about a necessary redesign for the site. An idea came up for an Obelisk, which I...
