Sadly, one of the *very* few angles where that's true.I think the above is the best angle of the skyline with the Winthrop Tower. The gap between them allows both MT and WT appear more prominent
FAA limit drops off to 300' IIRC around there. Could be closer to the seaport thoughI just don't get the issues with extending downtown/financial district south from South Station towards the highway building in-between the highway and ramps and if possible over some of it. It's almost like prime location realastate without nimbus.
The one thing this perspective--all these wonderful photos posted in this thread, from this exact vantage point--conveniently overlooks, of course, is this. A remarkably blighted structure, abandoned and given over to rot since at least 2010, if not prior. Of course, it does represent some exceptional redevelopment challenges, in terms of any would-be developer seeking to "go tall" there, to recoup purchase price and obtain sufficient ROI.That view when you step out of south station was always so underwhelming for the location right in downtown. For some reason the angle was just right where there was a hole in the skyline and some really stumpy buildings and a big dig service building that blocked out the whole skyline. Winthrop ctr has finally changed that forever and its nice to see.
