classic NIMBYism and classic FAA, stymieing development wherever and however minimally as possible. The shadow argument is as old as history itself. As for the FAA, I wouldnt be surprised to hear in the future if rival developers or NIMBYs pay them off to cut the height of new towers around the country. They routinely threaten developers with "notices of obstruction" and will coerce them to comply or face delays through the bureaucratic process.

It's not just the height. The new design is an abomination. I'm honestly too embarrassed to even post it. I hope it gets revised before scarring Boston's skyline forever.

The selected design by Handel Architects which has been shown repeatedly is beautiful. Are they not using it?

There is a new design also by Handel that is replacing the original design for the tower.


Curbed article with the image.

The prior design was better, but this is nice too.

Boston and DC are tied for my second favorite US city, so I hope that Amazon selects Beantown and that some more amazing new buildings are constructed there too.

This is an abomination. The ugly offset windows, the disharmony between the various confused textures, and the horrendous tumor-like window at the top all add up to an attrocious design. Its like the architect didnt know what to do and so decided to slap a bunch of different rejected designs together.

This is pathetic, and it shames the clean and stoic towers around it. This will be an awful blight on the Boston skyline. One of the cleanest and classiest skylines in the world.
