i am wondering what the timetable might be for the remaining demo to build the east mid-rises, and 29 story residences off the Greenway. Thinking some time approaching full occupancy of the resident tower would be just about right from a monetary standpoint. But will it happen sooner?Seeing that giant brick monstrosity down is joyful.
Very close to the original Shawmut Peninsula Terra Firma -- but its complicated because there was the Cove which later became the Mill Pond and still later was filled -- not very far away today is Causeway St which essentially follows the Dam that closed off the Cove and created the Mill Pond
Given that the residence tower site needed a slurry foundation I would bet that this one will also need slurry work. i think the silos on the west side of the site are slurry related.
Yeah after bashing it a few months ago I'm gonna wait and see. The real question is going to be how it looks after the other towers - Lomasney, N Station, the Congress St tower - are built. The whole part of the city is looking much better with some towers closing in all the vast wastelands and wide roads. I'm not a huge fan of this and wish it were taller, actually - but I think it will be a decent addition amongst others, but certainly not something that I want to see a lot of. So far, it basically looks like a pretty generic new tower that could be anywhere, but hard to say without seeing it complete.Opinion of this one has already turned for the favorable but I'm a holdout. You can either be slender of proportion or you can be transparent to try to mitigate your bulk. This presents a face that is both wide and relatively opaque, but because of its construction none of the opacity lends any sense of massiveness. What is it doing well that people are so into, besides "being a new tower" and "replacing something we didn't like?" On its own merits, I mean. To me, this building is overwhelmingly okay.
Slurry rig is working the SW corner.
