What's going on here?! Seems like all the pages are all messed up with writing that doesn't make any sense at all.

5 Washington Street - demolished the gas station and small office building in November and have been pushing soil around into a flat lot, sinking piles (?) around the perimeter of the site and utility work thru now.
Thanks dhawkins; I think this one's got it's own thread here.

Interestingly, this project also seems to have an older orphaned thread here that had the project kickoff info. Maybe Mods can merge all of this into one thread (probably the first link above since that has the most content)?

Sort of depressed about how prominent all those vents are on an otherwise pretty nicely composed facade. Even just the bare minimum of color matching would have helped.
Had the exact thought.
Really detracts from the overall look.

I really wish that modern architecture didn't shy away from strong cornice lines. It seems to try to downplay the top of the building and hope you don't notice it, but it just comes across as being disingenuous, especially when combined with the sunk penthouse level that's usually a lighter color. Compare this to older buildings that have a dark colored mansard or a thick and detailed cornice!
