The glass looks sharp. I wish they had done something to make the Federal Street facade not so flat.

Agreed its short but iconic. It has a lot of that style the twin towers used, which while the structural core/perimeter steel support structure with massive floor plates and no interior columns stayed, the closely spaced exterior columns went out of style almost instantly in favor of large glass windows. I love time capsules like this that great cities have with examples of buildings built in each new style that came. If Boston had more art deco and less brutalism it would be in the next tier, but regardless it still has some great examples.

Now that you say that, 133 Fed gives me some decent Twin Tower vibes. Especially with those column trees at the base, and the pinstripe facade design!

Memorial Drive is the best angle for this I've seen so far, as so many of the others are obscured. Thanks for the pics, DZH!
