Once again, the bowed glass side is spectacular. And it worked out in the end that the other sides are now mostly hidden by neighboring developments. But that was a ghost town around that building before the others came in to hide it. Perhaps it was built with that in mind for the future.
It was always expected that the non-harbor side would fade away in the sea of development about to come. The structure was designed to have only one very public face, which they nailed.

Still, would it have been the worst thing if they made the Seaport Boulevard side (main artery and sidewalk) more pedestrian friendly and less fortress-like? For human beings, that is not a hidden area at all.


....and please, no comments about "Security needs to be like a bunker for that type of courthouse!". Then that particular location - one of a kind - should never have been chosen.

Please, no more about Moakley Courthouse. It's there, you have zero control over it, quit whining.

Ummm….who the hell are you - eight days in - coming in here and setting your rules for the members here???? You DO understand you entered an architectural/urban planning discussion forum? Information and the free flow of opinions is what this forum is about. Obviously, you are confused.

If you don't like it, "mansprawl" somewhere else.
