I believe that's accurate and I may have misspoke. The exterior was cleaned and did change color! Plus the windows were replaced. So it probably wasn't a total recladding but more of a refresher.I do know that the towers went from ungainly pure white to ungainly tan. At the time I didn't believe it was a recladding job, but a repaint.
Just checked out 1 Cumberland on Google Maps. I would like to know how that property survived the building of the Midtown back in the 1960's. The hotel was built around it. Preservation was not strong back then. It must have been a stubborn owner who refused to sell.
What street is this? It certainly is not Huntington Ave.Just caught this on a south end group Facebook page https://thebostonsun.com/2020/10/15...45gqT8gm6PwPUF8nznKYhHoVEKtH94Najgegfc7e5F1x4View attachment 7783
I agree that the rendering looks that way, but I would be really surprised if it happens. St. Botolph is a protected historical neighborhood. You don't raze a row house without a big stink happening. We'll have to wait for the PNF to understand what they are really proposing for that side of the proposal.
This design seems so contextual for the area! Like a modern rendition of the brutalist block across Mass Ave from the Mother Church.Just caught this on a south end group Facebook page https://thebostonsun.com/2020/10/15...45gqT8gm6PwPUF8nznKYhHoVEKtH94Najgegfc7e5F1x4View attachment 7783
