From my front door. Steel and stairwells topped out as of this week.

It looks like the 3-story side fronting Hampshire Street still needs to be constructed, right?

The other thing that's surprising me as this goes up is it's not getting as close to Congress Street as it appears to in the above rendering, which makes it appear almost contiguous with back of the squat white brick building. It will be interesting to see how the corner park gets worked into the development too.

right, the 3-story segment has yet to be built, and it will be flush with the corner of Federal and Hampshire.

Personally, I can't imagine anyone paying a premium for a brand new condo with a view of nothing but the Co-Op dumpsters. As someone who lives on that corner...it seriously needs some good placemaking and beautification.

That building looks really good. Love the natural colors and the punch outs add depth and interest. I'd say that residential design is a win.
