I don't understand what the drama is all about. This new building is absolutely in keeping with, and 100% respectful of, the overall North End aesthetic -- blends in like it's been there since 1908!

Looks like a change to the Coast Guard Base is in the works. Article from the Hub site.
Ground has been broken on the Coast Guard expansion

Idk where else to put this

“In an effort to revitalize and reoccupy the existing building, Oxford proposes to change the use of approximately 155,000 square feet of the existing commercial space to allow for its use as either life science/R&D, office, or both uses. Importantly, overall Gross Floor Area (“GFA”) will not increase and no significant alterations to the building exterior, envelope or site plan are proposed as part of this change of use.”

I used to work in that building... I just remember the elevators being really slow. Oh and the huge bathroom deficit for ratio of men : women in the building considering it was like 90% tech companies operating inside WeWork spaces.
