This one is just about topped out (maybe 1-2 more floors at most worth of crown)

It's too bad they didn't incorporate the old building facade into the base of this one.

Meet Radian Boston!

Quote:
You probably know it better as 120 Kingston Street.

That's the address of the 26-story apartment tower under construction at the nexus of Chinatown and the Leather District, a game-change-y type of development that replaced the ancient Dainty Dot building and that almost didn't get built thanks to the Great Recession. The tower's developers, Forest City and the Hudson Group, have christened 120 Kingston Radian Boston. There's even a nascent website and everything.

Where's the name come from? Well, without getting too technical (not that we couldn't) a radian is a unit of angular measure tied to a circle's radius. Radian Boston's design, as you can see from the above photo of it under construction earlier this year, basically mimics a radian.


Not as forward architectually as the Radian in Philadelphia but still an easier name to remember.

Pretty sure the correct height for this is 26 floors/299'

Argh , they could have easily integrated the historic building. Anyway, above average tower IMO.
