The layout and footprints of the buildings actually seem well-thought out to me. The buildings line up with Canal Street, which is ripe to be pedestrianized and the city has pondered/explored with that possibility in the past, and once it hits this development, there will be the option to cut diagonally to the Greenway on one side and diagonally to the Boston Public Market entrance and potential future development(s) at the JFK low-rise and City Hall Plaza.Curious design choices here. The Sudbury and the future smaller residential tower are clearly influenced by the JFK across the street and blend well. The State Street Tower is meant to be a stand-out building, and takes advantage of the many viewing angles - the view up the Charles will be first class.
What about the lower rises though? They certainly don't match anything else along the greenway, and show a pretty lazy office-park design. They are a few years away, but I'd be amazed to see a seaport-box approved here.
Lol I respect the strong take! Its fine enough in my book, I appreciate it doesnt try to pull any cheap parlor tricks.that building is aggressively ugly and has a serious negative impact on the overall skyline. one federal is right up there for bragging rights, too.
The pink undertone on the last 2 pics is because it was around 7 pm by that point. The pics were taken last Friday, so I don't think the smoke had arrived yet and it was just normal sunset colors.I absolutely abhor the reason why theres pink/orange undertones in the photos, but, standing on its own the photos have a really nice pop with that lighting.
