Oh hell yes. They held off on this info for a while they only mentioned the restaurant at B before. Im so happy that these views are not only going to be for the residents of the waterfront. I was more talking about all of the new buildings already completed that have no retail sort of being a missed opportunity and that it would have been nice if they had created a retail corridor down Marginal st, but I think the way that the rail trail comes down to the waterfront and ends in this area along with the park is going to be its own thing and its going to be awesome. It looks like they got the right vision.

This will definitely become a destination. Theres also the “mark” u/c next door so theres room to have some good restaurant spaces between these 2 alone. When all is said and done theres going to be some great dining with great views and to be honest, the rail trail and how these tie into it, with the waterfront park and expansion coming, the expanded harbor walk, and then some amazing new restaurants with outdoor seating space is going to be absolutely incredible.

Really happy with all of this. People will now be able to really appreciate and take advantage of some of the most incredible views in the entire city that were not being utilized at all before with the empty lots. I cant wait. Boston literally becomes a better city because of this.


Thanks for the share, heres the screengrabs:







-These views in this last render did not exist before from a retail or dining space. Look at that! Spaces like this are what make world class cities, world class. You can see the pieces starting to line up around the city that are really bringing the city up to a higher level. We have the right pieces, they just needed to be utilized. Its nice to see that they are.

Fascinating Who knew a fungus learning to eat dead trees saved us from a permanent ice age due to sequestered carbon

and here I thought it was Plate Tectonics which saved us as we transitioned into a world with multiple continents and seas at the onset of the Permian
from the wiki article
Oceans

Sea levels in the Permian remained generally low, and near-shore environments were reduced as almost all major landmasses collected into a single continent—Pangaea. This could have in part caused the widespread extinctions of marine species at the end of the period by severely reducing shallow coastal areas preferred by many marine organisms.

Paleogeography

Geography of the Permian world
During the Permian, all the Earth's major landmasses were collected into a single supercontinent known as Pangaea. Pangaea straddled the equator and extended toward the poles, with a corresponding effect on ocean currents in the single great ocean ("Panthalassa", the "universal sea"), and the Paleo-Tethys Ocean, a large ocean that existed between Asia and Gondwana. The Cimmeria continent rifted away from Gondwana and drifted north to Laurasia, causing the Paleo-Tethys Ocean to shrink. A new ocean was growing on its southern end, the Tethys Ocean, an ocean that would dominate much of the Mesozoic era. Large continental landmass interiors experience climates with extreme variations of heat and cold ("continental climate") and monsoon conditions with highly seasonal rainfall patterns. Deserts seem to have been widespread on Pangaea. Such dry conditions favored gymnosperms, plants with seeds enclosed in a protective cover, over plants such as ferns that disperse spores in a wetter environment. The first modern trees (conifers, ginkgos and cycads) appeared in the Permian.

Three general areas are especially noted for their extensive Permian deposits—the Ural Mountains (where Perm itself is located), China, and the southwest of North America, including the Texas red beds. The Permian Basin in the U.S. states of Texas and New Mexico is so named because it has one of the thickest deposits of Permian rocks in the world.

Climate

Selwyn Rock, South Australia, an exhumed glacial pavement of Permian age
The climate in the Permian was quite varied. At the start of the Permian, the Earth was still in an ice age, which began in the Carboniferous. Glaciers receded around the mid-Permian period as the climate gradually warmed, drying the continent's interiors.[14] In the late Permian period, the drying continued although the temperature cycled between warm and cool cycles.
Interesting Art nonetheless

Yet another INCREDIBLE addition to our now world class waterfront. The additions made to the waterfront here are all time great to go along with THE best skyline views of Boston. In just a few months now weve gotten clippership wharf, the pier 4 waterfront, martins park and whats even better is each of these developments smartly implemented improvements to the waterfront flood control of the city. A+

Whats nice about this also is that its not only for rich people, the whole city gets to benefit from the harbor walk improvements, waterfront restaurants, kayak launch, art, green space, flood barrier...etc

Need something comparable to the Singapore Merlion -- active water on the waterfront


keeping with the theme -- how about a Giant Teapot pouring into a Liberty Bowl next to a Clipper Ship or perhaps on a clippership or maybe the clippership should be floating in the Liberty Bowl with the Teapot Pouring -- well in anyway -- we need something that will wow both the locals and the tourists and the fungus that saved us from a snowball earth is not quite in that category
