Just a quick question - is there a thread that's following the work going on along Memorial Drive? I haven't seen any discussion of it on here at all but maybe I'm missing it. I'm particularly curious to know what that crane was doing.
This one?Having a hard time searching for this one on here: whats the thread for the redevelopment of the Globe site? When I search, I get swamped with people quoting globe articles.
Besides this site, I always check Wikipedia for the tallest buildings in Boston which shows all buildings built plus those under construction and those that have been proposed and/or approved.
About 2 or 3 years ago, they removed the 800' South Bay Tower. Just this past week it showed back up on the site as proposed. Anyone know if it was proposed again?
Why exactly was the South Bay Tower knocked off?Hold on. Something's wrong there.
The edits should have been done to One Bromfield, not South Bay Tower. At least it appears to be that since if you click on the reference next to South Bay Tower, it brings you to the bottom of the page where you can click through to see the reference document and it's a One Bromfield architect brochure from a BPDA page.
That doesn't answer your question though, which is why South Bay Tower is back up there, but my guess is the contributor put in an old page or something?
Looks as though the contributor has only posted 2x on Wikipedia, both times on that page, whatever that may imply.
Thanks for the 10 pages of the document. Given the dismal history of air rights development attempts over the Mass Pike, I don't have high hopes for this one happening in the foreseeable future, but it does look good (minus any adjustments per FAA height limits).Speaking of which, does anyone by chance have a copy of
The South Bay Planning Study, Phase I Report
from 2004? This was a joint publication by the BRA (sic) and Massachusetts Turnpike Authority (sic).
I found 10 pages of it (out of 69 pages, I think?) on one guy's website but can't find the whole thing. https://www.daveseeley.com/p673210251
