Amazing!

Pretty cool that the Alcott will fill in a “gap” from that angle as well between NST and the Hancock tower. This widens out the downtown skyline as well which is great.

Boston really has a uniqueness to it that you see from every angle and that looks like no other city on Earth. It looks very “Boston” if that makes sense, even these new towers though theyre not icons.. they are still unique, and fit in here perfect. Our skyline isnt all glass like some, doesnt have the art deco of others, but there is a healthy mix of styles, colors, textures, and materials, that really work well and create a nice end product.

Damnit, we NEED copley tower. I dont care how, but the city HAS to get it done. Sell the air rights to the hancock garage project across the street, sell the project to a new developer, extend the deadline indefinitely so the grandfathered in height never expires and lowers due to the new shadow laws, use eminent domain, idc how... git r dun...

The money shots!
(Also), the light and atmosphere almost makes those look like renders.

What is the Alcott? Is it the tower in the west end behind the TD Garden? I can't find any proposals for it.
