I used to work building security here on the day shift about 13 years ago. The guards they use at night are worthless most of the time. They are afraid to make rounds outside and won't patrol the garage. It's pretty pathetic. We do have a garage guard in the evenings but he carries a gun. That makes all the difference with him.

That extra facade wall on the roof you mentioned will be cool when they are done. It's LED lights will add a bit more sparkle to our skyline.

Yes, but it is still illegal.

He's aware of that guys. Telling him it's illegal and dangerous isn't going to stop him from doing it.

Quite the opposite.

This is true. We're giving him more attention than he deserves. I guess he even e-mailed Wilhelm Construction (working on re-clad) to brag about his climb.

You're right.
I'm all for awesome photos, but we must respect the law.
We shouldn't be supporting this sorts of acts.

Yesterday's memo from building management...

Exterior

The installation of the new curtain wall on the North and South sides of the building will be completed in the next 30-45 days. Prep work on the East and West sides is progressing on schedule. It is anticipated that the new glass panel installation on these two sides will start by March 1st. The exterior work is projected to be finished in June of this year.

Interior

The interior design for tying into the new exterior has and continues to undergo intense study and evaluation in search of a final design. The target date for finishing the interior plan is April 1, 2009. As of now, the interior work is to start 2 months after the completion of the exterior or August of this year. There will be a lot more information to come in the near future regarding this phase of the project.


Suite Visitations

Beginning in the next week, individuals from the architecture and design firm of Lamson & Condon will be visiting tenant suites to document existing perimeter conditions in preparation for the interior work starting, as mentioned above, later this year. These individuals will present a picture ID and will have a visitor badge. Please work with them to schedule appropriate times for them to visit your suite.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Does anyone think that the building management will consider doing something, even minor with that lower portion? Just seems like a clash. One guy has a deal with 3 Mass and beige, I have a deal with the lower portion of this one. Not my money though. Just seems a power wash and trim job, paint, just something would help!

It's hard to tell what the owners will ultimately do, but it seems everyone's always agreed that something should be done to unify the tower and pedestal.

From blocks away they look like two separate buildings, which could be a good thing - If nothing ever happens, it does add to the illusion of density downtown.

The new skyline shots that only show the completed sides of this already makes a huge impact. The re-clad is a major improvement.
