Approved 62 years ago, and with our only alternate train station down for the next 5 years,
i wonder if there's a snowball's chance in hell the project ever starts.

Odurandina -- Much better than a snowballs chance

If they mentioned this in a Teleconference associated with their quarterly financials -- its fairly high on the priority list -- if you are Publicly Traded company -- you don't mention $300M? projects casually -- the SEC might be listening in on the call

The worst proposal in Boston for a long time. Stack of blocks, tacky, overbearing, and walling off money views of the Hancock.
DZH -- these are the same folks who paid big $ for the former Hancock [now 200 Clarendon] -- I doubt that they would approve anything from their architects which damaged the value of 200 Clarendon

Hey guys! A few of us in the office were staring at The Alcott rise today and got into a conversation about the rising height of Boston's skyline. So that led me to a question none of us could answer. Would you guys be able to apprximate when the following buildings plan to rise as the Alcott started doing last month?

  • One Congress / State Street HQ --> I suspect the summer (?)
  • St. Regis --> Not sure at all.
  • Winthrop Square Tower --> Now that the second crane is up, maybe it will start rising soon?
  • Fenway Center Phase Two when it goes u/c --> I suspect 12-16 months after groundbreaking.

Massachoicetts -- The following is just my "hopefully semi-educated guess" -- since outside of some walk-abouts and some reading I am not privy to any inside information. Note that I define rise as some easily observable increase in the basic plane of construction above either the nearby unmodified surface [e.g. a street or sidewalk or parking lot] or something else besides a deepening or widening hole in the ground.

  • One Congress / State Street HQ --> early phase of excavating -- perhaps by this time next year
  • St. Regis --> very soon -- by June
  • Winthrop Square Tower --> Now that the second crane is up -- Now to early March
  • Fenway Center Phase Two when it goes u/c --- No idea
  • South Station Air Rights -- late summer for the platform
  • Google -- Next year
  • Amazon -- a month or so
