I thought this one was going to be taller but it looks like it's only about 270'.

I hate to be that person, but this building looks stumpy. Either adding 10-12 floors or cutting its width would make it look much nicer.

They need to disconnect it from the adjacent buildings and are drilling the piles in basement right now.

Different buildings on different streets. They aren't part of the same site.
Part of one large development however so there is more than a casual juxtaposition relationship

Same thing will be true with Volpe Center redevelopment -- after the Fed's get their new building there will be probably 5 or so buildings and landscaping developed on the current site of the Volpe Center

Volpe has only one developer. Also, why did you bump this thread to reply to something from weeks ago?

Gameguy -- I'm aware of that about Volpe -- but the same is true about Boston Properties and the original Cambridge Center --at least initially
as for the other comment -- I replied to a thread in what I thought was a germane fashion and then it moved to here entirely under some other forces

It's weird that we haven't officially heard that the MBTA has approved the headhouse. It's always been tentative. Hope they do...
