The webcam overhead shot had been stuck without an update for the past few days. It just came back online this morning... Well guess what! They turned the camera oh-so-slightly so we can no longer adequately follow the Bulfinch construction with this webcam! 😦

That looks awesome. Not a place I'd frequent, but awesome nonetheless. Really like the faux-Old Garden façade.

Time to get real excited. Movement on the Old Garden site. 2 towers- 430ft and 440ft. Multilevel target. Underground supermarket.

They say shovels this year, and I am actually encouraged because they explicitly mention Target, which I think shows that there is a lot of ducks in a row behind the scenes. Once this tops off, time to start on gov't center garage.
This is the opening entry (2013) of the post, many of the details changed (Target and Stop & Shop) but it is very close to the project that is being completed now.

Three sites that need to be included in the North Station development area:
  1. Mass Gen Parking lot next to the tracks
  2. the fat bloated, stump of the Tip Oneal Federal building
  3. the old Spaulding rehab hospital
That group of properties could sprout a tower of magnificent scale -- probably after the railroad draw bridge is rebuilt

Any idea when that will be finished?

re; Causeway St fatty: For the width, it'll need 30 more floors, go ~925' etc.
re; 50 Sudbury St: yeah, that looks good!

Nope, all the grownups decided this is what they wanted and needed.

We really needed a larger residential component, particularly right on top of the city's 2nd busiest train station. They never should have sacrificed all those extra units. (unless I missed something and the housing crisis is behind us?)

Agree with you, but he is crying over the office component being too fat for his liking despite this is what the owners and signature tenant paying all the money wanted.
