I can't see that garage having any redeeming features either. Ditto for Tremont on the Common. The rest of your List 2 are buildings I can accept as part of the urban landscape, though not necessarily love.
^ Fair enough, though its [few] defenders would tell you that as an object the garage is a brilliant exercise in the use of structural precast --like the Five Cents Savings Bank. That's the end of its list of virtues, though.
Even the O'Neill, I can imagine some future generation retrofitting to provide street-level storefronts, like the State Transportation Building has. It sort of looks like the designers intended this, but didn't follow through.
