    South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

    searching FAA archives.... Seems we were somewhat close to getting the 2nd version (the one shown above, that people like much more)--back in 2008. Work Schedule: 09/01/2008 to 02/01/2010 https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external/searchAction.jsp?action=displayOECase&oeCaseID=528833&row=8

    Housing

    i think it might. i strongly subscribe to the trickle down theory. Also, students might bunch up and pool their resources to live in those nicer units. Eventually, a landlord will rent a unit at what the market will bear--as opposed to allowing it to stay vacant indefinitely. Capitalism...

    I assume the 21 story/278' mid-rise has hit the big sleep phase? until demand kicks up.......

    Pinnacle at Central Wharf (Harbor Garage) | 70 East India Row | Waterfront | Downtown

    i assume he stated that with an asterisk: re; the extreme revenue design tower--which we have before us.

    Pinnacle at Central Wharf (Harbor Garage) | 70 East India Row | Waterfront | Downtown

    It's already been 14 years since Don Chiofaro first proposed developing Central Wharf. NECN/BBJ video segment from 2018; https://www.necn.com/news/business/bbj-report-don-chiofaros-1b-harbor-garage-tower/210395/ So many great points made! i thought they deserved aggregation. We're now...

    Pinnacle at Central Wharf (Harbor Garage) | 70 East India Row | Waterfront | Downtown

    Pardon all. We're seeing the design vs a (once in 2 generations) opportunity incites much emotion and passion! i thought there were so many great points/counter points made, and then the discussion get disproportionately sideways. i cringe at the notion this could be a polarizing design. --and...

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

    ^^The Hub tower was hurt by outside forces. The Eye and Ear shows how low they (once) would go even without outside help.

    South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

    i lean toward the Tabasco Tower gaining favor if not becoming beloved. it won't have an awkward appearance from 98% of vantage points.

    How Tall Are Boston's Buildings and Should They Be Taller?

    By 2025, we'll have ~45 buildings within 100~110' of the magical "Fat 500'." and just 6 taller than 610' No one can deny there has been an unbelievable transformation. But some can still claim the City's skyline is plagued by nil dynamic range: fat, stunted Downtown towers, by any reasonable...

    Pinnacle at Central Wharf (Harbor Garage) | 70 East India Row | Waterfront | Downtown

    Yes! Let's do that! Boston's skyline has been spoken of so disreputably for so long-- why stop now? We must keep it going! By 2025, we'll have ~45 buildings within 100~110' of the magical "FAT 500'." and just 6 taller than 610' Nil dynamic range: fat, stunted Downtown towers a barren, un-built...

    Pinnacle at Central Wharf (Harbor Garage) | 70 East India Row | Waterfront | Downtown

    So much like 50 Sudbury, the building so incredibly edifies its surroundings. The key feature for the tenants has always been the stunning, 360 views. But i question if this is a place holder, because the sexy, pleats would seem to crop the horizontal visual range. That's not desirable.

    Pinnacle at Central Wharf (Harbor Garage) | 70 East India Row | Waterfront | Downtown

    Will this be the priciest office space in the City. It's not a sugar fix like Accordia was (for me). i'm frankly, stunned over this design. The cycle is seeing exponential improvements at our transit stations, iconic massing/s, heights, claddings, vastly improved street walls, Air Rights...

    South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

    i realize this has been in the planning for many years, but i wonder if this generally reflects poorly on a significant Salesforce lease coming to Boston. https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1915168&page=2
