It looks bad from the north east, which the back bay always has because of the Hancocks fat side. So in that case its fine. One good thing Im noticing is that shot is becoming more and more blocked by North Station tower, Hub residential, office tower, and soon the garden garage tower. So thats definitely a plus.

At the exact same time though from the north west/general western view of the city (BU bridge area) the addition of 1 Dalton, though actually off set from the spine and close to the pru, lines up perfectly, appears perfectly spaced, and looks great. From the south it lines up great as well, and as head on from the west where you see this and the pru next to each other is awesome too. Luckily in real life most people are rarely in a position to be looking at the worst angle, even from the redline its not its worst angle.

Back Bay spine and 1 Dalton as seen from the southeast expressway, I-93, driving north towards Boston. The first is taken just beyond the Braintree split. The second & third are near the gas tank. The last near the old Globe building. Not sure I’ve seen these vantage points on this thread.

when it first topped off late last summer or fall or whenever it was, this was the viewpoint which had me convinced it was a little taller than the pru, as certain FAA filings suggested.

i realize i shouldn't care as much (or at all, really), but those remaining plywood panels infuriate me. for a tower -- a four seasons, no less -- that "opened" five months ago to still be in such a state...

Beeline that's a unique angle on the back of Lightview, mind me asking where it was taken from? Not it's most flattering angle really but I'm curious...

As for the plywood I really don't understand but looking at my photo collection the top two balconies have gotten their plywood taken down in the last two weeks so that's... A start... And I've definitely seen guys working on that side of the building in the window cleaner rig this week around the plywood areas... Sounds like from the articles I read they had other bigger problems to deal with first

All would be forgiven if they gave me that lit-up Four Seasons tree logo at the top! :p

The first photo was from Harrison, next to the fire station.
The second photo was from 2 blocks west of Dudley Sq.
The thrid photo was from Roxbury Crossing east of the Eastern Bank.

You and me both! I did see an article somewhere blaming delays on elevator inspections but I am not sure if that is the cause of the embarrassing plywood remains.
