Oduradina, Not every tower proposed will make it all the way to construction so fast.
Not every tower proposed will make it all the way to construction, period. That isn’t a phenomenon unique to Boston either. It happens everywhere.

FWIW, "South Station Development" is on the agenda for Massport's Board tomorrow. It's in executive session and they don't post slides for a month anyway, but it's on there.

^^and ostensibly being built as 2 parcels.
So let's add the East Tower parcel, and include that as a 2 for 1 deal
we're..... 2/7.
Ain't great. Ain't even good.
This is why Boston can't afford to do anything for itself.....
like doing site prep to jump start REAL AIR RIGHTS PROJECTS
at all the failed sites.....

Maybe if you keep rehashing pointless crap and obnoxiously quoting yourself, tall buildings will start magically appearing?

Hey I think we hit the 32 hour mark! So we were due for another Doom and Gloom post. Starting the clock!

How did Massport get involved with South Station?? or is it just something perfunctory about FAA heights

Massport is involved in the land swaps with USPS. Even if SSX doesn't happen, they might still want to do the swap and the development on Dorchester Avenue would still tie in to SST.

This project is a must. Would be awesome to add another 650+ building to the downtown core to go with MT and Winthrop.

Very much a rookie here so forgive my terminology...

The concrete caps on the pilings between the train tracks are being removed leaving the steel exposed. Noticed this yesterday for the first time.

I work very near to SS and we’re being told by building management construction will be starting soon.

Unclear to me what but there is definitely evidence of some site work going on already and building management has been made aware of “work” starting soon.
