Walked by 371 Beacon again yesterday. There's at least one balcony that's leaning out/disconnected from the building. I imagine they've been working on them, but what a scrappy construction job, all around. The "back" of the building is also pretty bad - like it's already aged 40 years and it's not even (close to) open yet.

That's what I've been wondering. The unfinished building has been exposed to the elements for quite a while now. This is a closeup (from a few years ago) of the construction of the 1868 Mass Ave Porter Square hotel. So not expecting that building to weather well in the decades ahead either. But what do I know? I'm not in the construction industry.
