Although none of these are landmark developments they are all solid proposals for best development.

I'm going to go with 1.

I think 3 and 5 belong in "worst"

I can see not getting excited by 50 miles of bike lanes (although I am) but saying it's a candidate for worst development? That's a bit much.

#4. I just love that bridge and its connecting parks. But I feel like I should be voting for the MassArt Dorm.

Yes the Mass Art dorm. It's 21st century, adds color, is not afraid to be bold.
Some concern about the panels though. Will they age gracefully? Hope so.
