I have a nice updated graphic of what will be the tallest 12 towers (incl 1 Dalton Street reaching a few feet higher than the Pru), Millennium Tower, and the 625 foot Copley place - but i guess i can't post it.

so, i'll post something of current Boston projects here, and in the (Boston projects thread) as I best understand them to be....

Can't help but be disappointed that of 6 likely towers that will eclipse 450 feet; (2) at City Hall, and 3 or possibly 4 at North Station; (Avalon + the 2 TD Garden towers + the 447 foot Equity Residential tower awaiting word from BRA), include 2 final renderings that fall short of their BRA approved heights of 600 feet... i think mixed heights of 450~480 to 600 feet would greatly contribute to forming a low 'domed' rounded skyline in the Financial District. Instead, what we're seeing are more opportunities lost to reach 600 feet in crucial locations where it is highly appropriate to do so. this will prove to be a mistake.

example; a few tall towers added near the (McCormack Buiding/gigantic box monolith) would have helped mitigate it's visual (blight) upon our city. The 5 TD Garden buildings including one granted permission to ascend to 600 feet adjacent to the new Converse building and Boston Garden would have been a home run. The BRA was on the right track.

But now, as if willed by forces unseen, not one of the 4 towers proposed near or adjacent to TD Garden reaches even 500 feet, let alone the pinnacle height granted by the BRA. Of all the approved towers in the Financial District, only 2 will rise aboe 500 feet; they are South Station likely to reach 600~620 feet), and the other is the 528 foot cylindrical spire at City Hall.

450-500 foot high rise buildings can be a 'boxy.' In Boston, it turned out far worse. But, in the Boston Garden area, what we're going to get look "ok" and should add some density at the shoulders of the high spine.

City Hall and the Winthrop Garage need to rise near the 650~700 foot plateau.

but, after Millennium Tower, it seems all we'll be getting is (1) 600 foot tower at South Station.


*please excuse if i have a listed any in error...

***list updated on the next page after today's stunning news.


forum won't let me post an image or link. the fake link below has two spaces. if someone could please copy then close these spaces, view the image and please repost it.
