Interesting, all three winners are transportation related.
Totally agree on Church Park. Also, I was wondering about the Sheraton too. Who even nom'd it and for what reason? There's no reason it should have even been included. It's already known I feel the same about Copley Place too.For next year I'd like to nominate Church Park Apartments, across Mass. Ave. from the Christian Science Center. It walls off the East Fenway neighborhood from Mass. Ave. Even though it's lined with ground-floor retail, the storefronts and especially their signs are set back so far from the street, under a concrete overhang, that they are hard to see (and thus hard to keep filled).
Does anyone here remember why the Sheraton-Boston got nominated for this category? It is not outstanding architecture but it fits pretty well into the Prudential Center.
Each time a proposal to replace a garage gets made, we realize how detrimental the garages are to the urban fabric. I love Chiaforo's red X too.I wonder if the Harbor Garage would has won if there wasn't a proposal to replace it that was being held up by the city?
This feels more political than aesthetic.
Congress and Harbor Garage have to go. The BRA should be promoting development on these two sights.Each time a proposal to replace a garage gets made, we realize how detrimental the garages are to the urban fabric. I love Chiaforo's red X too.
