9+ years ago when this exterior was conceived it was not as generic (this proposal went through a fairly extensive community process to get the green light, which took some time).The programming sounds interesting. I wish they had put as much thought into the building's exterior. How the Saunders family, owner of a beloved Boston institution, and the Raffles Group, a singular brand themselves, history and good taste presumably important to both, could abide such a mundane and generic glass box is surprising. I have no doubt the opportunities for luxury and entertainment within will abound, but the artless exterior does not reflect well on either company and suggests little more than a profitable real estate deal.
Secondly, let's observe the quality/fit/finish of the exterior. If this is jewel-like, as I suspect it might be, then this will not be as mundane as you fear.
