^^^It looks VERY tall from that angle. I guess we'll probably never know whether or not this actually eclipses the Pru. The top comes in slightly below from most viewpoints. HOWEVER, it also sits on lower ground! It's one of life's great mysteries.

What's the bleeping holdup on the final pieces of glass amiright?

anyone want to start a bet on when the plywood will be gone? at this rate 2019 sounds optimistic.

Beeline -- I'll see - yah and raise - yah

Here''s Boston's 1000 ft-class tower [pick the right spot to take the pic] as we know how tall the Pru is with its Antenna Mast [spec 907 ft{276 m} registered by both the FAA and the FCC]

so I think on that basis of both the FCC and FAA Regidtrsation of the top of the PRU TV antenna @906 --then the new tower is at [least 895]

The plywood will be gone when the glass company gets paid. They are probably holding the glass hostage.

I walked by yesterday afternoon and they were using a verrrry tall bucket lift and a crane to replace the lowest wood covered windows on the Belvedere Street side. I can’t see them going much higher than they were though.

fantastic shots. thanks for posting. pix like these, as well as walking around 1 dalton the other day, really underscore what the JHT benefits from and this tower does not -- the surrounding architecture. i wouldn't go so far as to call it "unfair," but it's certainly a shame that, while JHT gets to bask in/add to the glory of trinity church, BPL, old south, fairmount copley, etc., 1 dalton is boxed in by the sheraton "towers" and other mediocre-at-best blobs. other than the view of 1 dalton from christian science center, from every other angle the poor thing is overwhelmed by garbage.
