Yup, they were rolling with this one as soon as they got the go-ahead at the beginning of the week.

I was under the impression that only residential and infrastructure was currently allowed, so I do have some confusion about this. However, from a skyline perspective this is the single most important building we'll get in the next 5+ years, so build baby build!

Honestly, not that bad looking.. Could be a sleek Zaha Hadid piece.. Though it reads horizontally more as an arena than a science center

They're back at work on this one! Pleasant surprise!
Jdrinboston -- Not so much of a surprise -- deep pockets all around:

the General Contractor -- John Moriarty & Associates, Inc. [Boston, DC & Florida projects] with AECOM Tishman [built more than 600 million square feet including the new One World Trade in NYC]
the Developer --HYM Investment Group backed by a joint venture between Carr Properties and National Real Estate Advisors
the principal Tenant -- State Street

and a lot of deep connections at different levels of political, financial and other

that's the current recipe for going forward


Then you throw-in the Amenities:
On-site Retail, Landscaped Terrace, Parking Garage, Activated Rooftop, Fitness Center, Conference Center, Electric Car Charging; Secure Bike Room
+ 1 stop from Blue Line to Logan
+ 1 Stop from Green Line & North Station [walking distance in the good season to both N and S Station]
+ 2 stops from Red Line

Interest rates are at record lows and the feds pumping money into bonds. That'll keep projects like this going.

Looks like the shorter res got a cladding upgrade too making it more similar to its bigger sibling. 👍.

The only negative is how hidden 1 sudbury will be, after seeing how well it turned out.

^^^Awesome! I am super excited about this one!

Here is a new render I don't remember seeing posted here. It it head and shoulders above The Sudbury. It also looks like the 2nd residential got taller and is now pushing 380'+.

View attachment 5839

DZH --- that render makes it clear that the next tear-down of the Brutal Era regime is the JFK low-rise
That site could be part park and part glass tower down toward the Congress & Hanover end of the plot -- I'd call it Zero Hanover -- gateway to the North End

Although the US economy is facing some uncertainty, I think the Boston market is strong and there is a dearth of new, high rise, managed residential buildings. These buildings are still unicorns.
