I prefer a hopefully temporary leasing sign over that gross Verizon sign. It's such a disappointment when you come into the city from the north to see this uninspired architecture and giant signs.
According to someone who works within city residential building leasing, victor is down to 88% rented, which is apparently very low. There are several others, that are much lower. Nema is struggling immensely, im hearing. Take it for what it's worth but they all speak to each other in order to optimize lease pricing levels.

A nice change thats been happening across quite a few cities lately is the demolition of old office buildings to be replaced with newer, more efficient replacements. A few years ago it would have seemed completely unrealistic to imagine the tip oneil building being de-constructed and replaced, but now... its much more of a possibility in the not so distant future.

The more built out and desirable the immediate area becomes, the more possible it becomes. Being a semi landscraper abutting north station makes less and less sense as the area reinvents itself. Who knows if/when it happens, but theres a much greater chance it does now, than there was not that long ago.

The feds have suburban needs in an urban location. Unless those programs can be convinced to decamp to 128, we’re stuck with the abomination.

I don't uniformly support taking down old buildings, but the Tip would be first in line IMHO. What a collosal waste.
