I personaly like the previous scheme better. I feel that it maybe have been taller, and it would have made a stronger, more elegant gesture on the skyline.

Exactly, I feel that it is much nicer. But maybe I am to romantic! I just wish that the latest scheme was more expressive. Also how do I post pics?

I was at South Station on Saturday, and sadly, nothing worth taking any pics of.
This is what it looks like now.

You are right. I guess I should have said prep, not U/C. My bad!

This should break ground in the next month or two, according to a local newspaper. This has been one of those projects that has taken forever to get going. They've been doing some prep work for the last few months. It's been painful waiting for this. I just want to see it get out of the ground!!

no, and it's probably going to be that way for at least another 5 years. Most likely the project is dead, there's been no news on it for over a year.

~ Bump!

An $850 million plan to return South Station to bygone glory



Quote:
When South Station opened in 1899, it had 28 tracks that sprawled from Atlantic Avenue to Fort Point Channel. Today, with only 13 tracks, trains idle outside the station while they wait for other trains to vacate berths, causing maddening delays.

Governor Deval Patrick wants to change that with an $850 million South Station expansion project, one of the major components of his sweeping transportation plan that includes projects across the state costing billions. Patrick is preparing to brief State House leaders and committee leaders on the plan next Tuesday, as legislators begin to debate the tax increases he has proposed to help pay for it.

There are vocal critics of a South Station expansion. But on the governor’s lengthy list of what many view as pipe dreams and long shots, the South Station expansion is one being pushed hardest — and one that is considered more likely than most to succeed.

Governor Deval Patrick’s South Station plans call for adding new tracks to the station’s existing 13, which would require relocating a US Postal Service facility currently on Dorchester Avenue. “It’s one of the stronger components of the plan,” said state Senator Robert Hedlund, a Weymouth Republican, who takes issue with many components of Patrick’s plan but said he knows that overcrowding at South Station is causing problems.

‘There are major benefits for the long-term competitiveness of the city.’

Richard A. Davey, the state’s transportation secretary, said he believes the South Station project is one of the strongest and most persuasive elements of the plan. “I am confident,” Davey said Friday when asked whether state legislators would support that element of the governor’s plan. “South Station really isn’t a choice.”

The governor’s South Station proposal calls for adding at least seven tracks to the station’s existing 13, requiring relocation of the adjacent US Postal Service’s General Mail Facility along Dorchester Avenue.

The governor’s proposal would reclaim that waterfront property.


Preliminary renderings of anticipated development on Atlantic Avenue and over the existing rail station.

South Station Tower still alive and on the boards!

I'm still amazed that the city doesn't have a North Station-South Station link. Boston really needs both that and this expansion; hopefully the necessary funding will turn up.

Might It Now Be Go-Time for South Station Tower?



Quote:
Friday, September 27, 2013, by Tom Acitelli

More Boston developers are switching their apartment plans to condo plans, buoyed by a mad-crazy market that sees condos go fast and for a lot more than they're asking. One of those developers might be Houston-based Hines, which has plans to construct a 49-story tower connecting the train and the bus parts of South Station. The 1.87 million-square-foot spire would be mostly office space, but would also include a 190-room hotel and 155 residential units.

Hines' website makes clear that it's up to the invisible hand to decide when everything gets under way: "While market demand will dictate the timing of construction commencement, South Station is destined to become a future landmark in Boston." Well, it looks increasingly like the market has spoken: Thomas Grillo at the Boston Business Journal reports that Hines is, indeed, leaning toward condos.
