Call me a buzzkill but after seeing what just happened <400 meters from here I wish more was done to actually protect architecture. The way it goes in reality is that you can tear down what you want as long as nothing gets built in its place with too high an FAR. See also: this entire thread.
Jumbo, there is "architecture" and then there is the Ipswich Street Garage. There is no intersection on that Venn Diagram.

Oh I know. I'm just bitter about the lack of preservation in the Fenway recently on other projects.

Heres a walkthrough video of what the finished building will be like.

Great stuff! My only concern from this video is if there is ever a need for a swift evacuation of this building. There will be hundreds, if not thousands in the building and there seems to be only a few very narrow street level exit/entry ways.

We'll have to wait to see the finished project, but the material palette feels really diminished from the rendering.
