The West End and Gov't Center really stands out now! What was always a nondescript part of the city is really transforming into something special and clearly enhancing the skyline. I am very intrigued on how the new State St tower will look when completed. Specials thanks to the Ab contributors for posting those pics.

The one with the two wicked big red cranes.
Yeah, the one which has its own thread which KriterionBOS posted in 10 minutes before asking "Which one is the new State St tower???" -- the thread with the heading "State Street HQ" :rolleyes:

At first not, but I now like the glass at the top lighter than the glass column below. If it were darker it might be a bit overbearing. This way it's less obtrusive next to the sky.
I think it’s a work in progress. The renders show it as identical to the glass running up the side. Personally I hope so b/c I think it looks like a plastic shopping bag on top right now.
