Alexandria Real Estate unvails new 12 story Lab/Office building proposal to neighborhood per attached BBJ article
Stick -- its interesting that there are not even massing kindas for the 6.5 acres to be developed next door to the building [of course by a major competitor development team]
I like the fact that the renders show that they are bringing rowing to Fort Point Channel
we just held an event there to have people go kayaking. Its actually a pretty good spot for it.I like the fact that the renders show that they are bringing rowing to Fort Point Channel
Seriously though, better than the original GE headquarters proposal is a good consensus. I agree it could look like it is trying to do a bit less, but overall a good looking building.
Too many ideas tacked on a relatively small building face IMO. While a nicely added feature, the balconies should go/be redesigned or that strange angular cut for the clearer windows should be taken out.
Also if I have my bearings right they put what looks like vertical solar shades on the face of the building with the least sun...
