Anyone know what this art(?) is supposed to represent? The throat of a whale?
I don't know this as a fact, but it sure looks alot like it was made by the artist 1010. They do these kind of layered murals.

It DOES. There's quite a lot of 10-to 12-stoy buildings being built there. Go online & do some research, please. :)

To clarify, I just simply meant that calling this “Southie” doesn’t sound right to me. I’m well aware of the development over the past 10+ yrs. I’m also aware it’s officially referred to as South Boston Waterfront, but I don’t think anyone really says “hey meet me at Empire or Envoy in Southie,” for example.

And the Wharf & Navy Yard areas -- DC's "South Boston Waterfront" if you will. If comparing, I think DC is the clear winner in creating a modern and engaging public realm.

10/17 Part 1 The Building

IMG_5062 by David Z, on Flickr
In my opinion, this design turned out so much better than the similar themed building on Pier 4 that is just behind the condos. That building on Pier 4 has almost the same geometry, but the all glass design of that building doesn't have the same design impact as this new Amazon building. I much prefer the windows on this Amazon building with the black frames.
