Those pillars look shaky. I wouldn't enter this building just looking at how non-lined up they are. Jenga Tower?

Those funky columns are supporting a lowrise retail podium and not the main residential tower. Otherwise, I'd agree!

The floor heights will increase about halfway up, but still won't be as tall as the base floors. When it passes the green roofed building to the right of it with the clock it will still have another 400' to go.

Doesn't look like it was delayed much by the heavy snowfall. Good progress.

The fact that you said there are a lack of historical buildings in downtown boston infers you just aren't looking hard enough. If anything they need to tear more historical buildings downtown and advance the skyline....which I'm happy to say that is becoming a reality. Nontheless Boston has one of the best looking skylines in America

Take it from me, I was born & raised there. The "scarcity of historical landmarks" is not something we worry about....

We don't hate it. I happen to love it. But we don't need to put lipstick on a pig and call it a pretty, elegant or beautiful work. Iconic maybe. Historic sure.

Hate is a strong word for an inanimate object...:lol

@IsraellyCoool There are 19 skyscrapers in Boston. More than in Philadelphia (more than twice Boston's size), DC or Seattle. For a city its size, it has a pretty decent amount of skyscrapers.
There is only one other tall building in the immediate area, which is probably what you meant.
