BP(D)A Zoning Board, I guess? The answer is not really per FAA/Massport rules. Though any buildings that go up around Gillette and the southern channel area could be 300ish based on that map. Probs too far to see from the harbor even with that extra height.Who is "they"?
CEO -- gotta put the Courthouse into proper temporal context -- when it was proposed there was nothing except the old Boston Wharf and Thompson Place toward Fort Point ChanelIt's actually not terrible to walk past on the Northern Ave side; there's panels with inspiring quotes about the law etc. Courthouse Way, on the other hand, has all the heavily-barricaded vehicular entrances.
Yes that set was from Piers Park. The key to viewing the city from East Boston is to go sometime in the morning. I probably got here by about 11:00, already slightly late for the best lighting (particularly when I moved on to the Madonna Shrine). In the afternoon the sun casts a terrible glare which washes out the colors in pictures.DZH -- Excellent!!-
East Boston has some of the least appreciated WOW views of the harbor-side Boston skyline
is this Piers Park?
True, I remember when the Courthouse Station headhouse was this lonely glass box in the middle of a sea of nothing, and now it's been integrated into a string of storefronts.CEO -- gotta put the Courthouse into proper temporal context -- when it was proposed there was nothing except the old Boston Wharf and Thompson Place toward Fort Point Chanel
Maybe the Pru observation deck will be open again by the time the tower starts rising! Winthrop Square will be blocked by the Hancock so we won't be missing that one.DZH -- Ina few weeks Dat'sa gonna be One Hellav'a view of the South Station Tower construction for the next 4 years -- its Ring-Side!!!
Boston -- nice set of nightime pix -- the seaport is really developing a unique nighttime look. At least in part because of the relatively long views enabled by Seaport Blvd.
