Well said Stick! I live a stones throw from Lake Ontario and its shameful how little public access there is too the lake front. Every time I visit Boston ( 3or 4 times a year) I make sure I walk the harborwalk. It really is a great party of Boston that keeps getting better.
Couldn't agree more with these sentiments...the city is improving dramatically. Yes affordability is a major issue, but in terms of street life, public spaces and excitement, it's 100% better than it was just 10 years ago.

I was a bit concern about the overall result of this building, but I'm very pleased the way it was built- specially the facade with the balconies & solid wall that distinguishes it from all the glass boxes around the bay.

The only quibble...is too many builders are using the real wood. It looks shabby and faded in short order. Check out the new celtics facility along the pipe. Sun bleached already. There are artificial products that look attractive and are durable.

Had friends in from Seattle and Jersey, some in the construction industry, did one of those sunset harbor cruise touristy things.
This is the only building that they all commented on and had a discussion about, they all liked it. When you look at seaport from the water it sticks out, in a good way.
