It's almost impossible to believe that 15 years ago, the steps Neon was standing on were not there, none of the buildings in the foreground were there. Except for the Moakley Courthouse, literally, nothing was there except for vast sections of parking lots. I have to say, it's been an incredible journey following the Seaport's development, watching it morph from parking lots to everything that is there today! It's a beautiful piece of Boston.

Could they be putting this up without a tower crane? Seems odd that a base hasn't appeared yet

They're not nearly to that point. They're just now putting up the forms for the second tier of the central core, and other parts of the site haven't been dug all the way down yet.

When I was passing through the area about a month or so ago - - I ran into some of the "brass hats" talking in the hole -- I asked about the crane and was told the goal was December -- and realistically January allowing for bad weather, etc.

Actually, looks like they're putting in the crane base now (the square yellow thing to the right). This makes me realize that every large building has mounting points for a tower crane embedded in its foundation somewhere.

There's still one at St. Gabriel's too, I think

Fenway Center maybe? Is there still a crane up there? I haven't really noticed I may be wrong there.
.. or that development in Kenmore Square in front of the Citgo sign. might have a sign up there now that I think of it.

No crane at either site as of last week.

Don't forget Kendall Sq. --there is at least one crane easily seen from both the Esplanade / Storrow and the MOS 6th floor

They've started to open up the parking garage. View attachment 2321
Cool, so that's how they remove the piling wall... I've been wondering the specifics of the "how" for years now as the garage gets expanded with each building being added. Years ago, the garage was simply the footprint size of the One Marina Park office building, which was fairly small. Then, one day years later you drive down the same garage entrance and see that the traffic flow markings have changed and the size has increased five fold. It's trippy and disorienting at first.
