Your correct. Rutherford Ave (99). I was standing on the south end of the tunnel.^^^If that's Route 99, I went into the city that way last night (via the Casino) and it really is amazing the way the new buildings dominate that viewpoint. It's just sad to think that the State Street headquarters will block the Bulfinch residential from the north. On the other hand, think about how much that building will DOMINATE!
This is almost topped out. Theyre building the glass “penthouse” on the roof right now with only the flat roof left to go after its complete (with 2 small mech boxes sticking up a bit above that). You can see the 3 bump outs are completed above and the roof above them as well and the glass section above that is u/c.
DZH -- Waiting for a Giant VerizonHave you changed your tune on the office tower? I remember you in particular saying that this building would ruin the skyline, be a major eyesore, etc. The more I am seeing of it I actually thing it's bleeping awesome, and going to easily be the best of the 4 buildings in this cluster (including Garden Garage Tower). The cladding looks really good.
Creating a tech epicenter
It'l be nice to have two of our Children back home where it all began:Boston is an epicenter of tech talent and The Hub will be the ‘next workplace’,” said John Vazquez, Verizon’s senior vice president of global real estate and supply chain. “We are helping spur innovation by prioritizing Boston and its vast resources as the place where future technologies are being developed.”
Verizon plans to expand ties with leading universities across the river in Cambridge, and throughout the Boston area, to attract top talent who specialize in new and emerging technologies.
An emphasis of The Hub will be on the community and experience. The building’s roof deck will include a unique meeting space for groups and organizations to hold functions, social gatherings and meetings. The Verizon Foundation will also utilize the space to host programs and events related to teacher training, STEM curricula, and connectivity to under-resourced students.
“We want an environment that goes beyond a traditional meeting spot and creates a perpetual destination for the tech community, transcending the ideology of the office by welcoming organizations, entrepreneurial companies and individuals to enjoy the amenities we have to offer,” Vazquez said.
