I love the glass roof but the rest is just a big blank wall (which is what art museums need!). $230 million well spent? I don't think so...


I do like the new skybridge at the Liberty Mutual development:

Garden Party! Tower Trio Joining West End's Spire Forest



Quote:
At the dawn of this busy year, TD Garden owner Delaware North and developer Boston Properties pitched a plan to build two towers where the old Boston Garden once loomed. They were even going to have a Target and a supermarket as part of the grand plan, which included heights of (gasp!) 430 feet. Well, the Target soon disappeared. Now other changes have popped up.

The developers have filed new plans with the city for three towers rather than two, one of them a 600-foot godzilla with 497 residential units. The other two would be a 320-foot hotel with 306 rooms and an office tower stretching to 420 feet. All total, there would 668,000 square feet of office space; 142,000 square feet of flex space; 235,000 square feet for restaurant and retail, including maybe that supermarket as well as a cinema; and 800 underground parking spaces.

Architect? Elkus Manfredi of course!

Back Bay tower proposal OK’d
Developers looking to make their mark on Boston’s skyline win BRA approval for project that would include city’s tallest residential tower

Boston regulators on Thursday approved construction of what will be the city’s tallest residential building, a 691-foot hotel and condominium tower that will rise at the edge of the Christian Science Plaza.

The 58-story building, to be situated at the corner of Belvidere and Dalton Streets, will add another major peak to the Back Bay skyline and bring thousands of new residents and visitors to one of the city’s most celebrated landmarks.

The 950,000 square foot development also includes a 25-story tower with 255 apartments; both new buildings will have retail and restaurant spaces. Construction is scheduled to start early next year. In total, the project will include 425 residences, 170 of which will be condominiums, and about 250 hotel rooms

Brutalist shocker!

Plans For Apartments, Hotel At Boston's City Hall



Quote:
DOWNTOWN—It's one way to stand out in a crowded campaign field: "Mayoral candidate state Rep. Martin J. Walsh is pushing a dramatic downtown development plan that would put a new City Hall under private ownership and open up Boston's most coveted site to a hotel, apartments and stores."


Marty Walsh pushes City Hall redevelopment



Quote:
Mayoral candidate state Rep. Martin J. Walsh is pushing a dramatic downtown development plan that would put a new City Hall under private ownership and open up Boston’s most coveted site to a hotel, apartments and stores.“You could put a hotel boutique here. You could put a full hotel here. You could have an office building. You could put so much in this area,” Walsh told the Herald while walking through the vast, deserted brick plaza yesterday morning. “We could have shops … that would fit in with 
Faneuil Hall Marketplace.”The Dorchester Dem*ocrat’s plan, which he 
unveiled exclusively to the Herald yesterday, involves bulldozing much-maligned Government Center — a concrete fortress built in 1967 that some critics liken to an ugly intergalactic spaceship.The city would sell the site to a commercial developer to build a mixed-use project likely to include a hotel, offices, residences and retail. The sale could fetch a price of between $125 million and $150 million and annual taxes of between $10 million and $15 million, Walsh said.It also would remove the hulking obstacle to views of Faneuil Hall and the North End, allow the city to possibly connect Hanover and Cambridge streets and 
allow pedestrians to easily stroll from Faneuil Hall to the Common and Downtown Crossing, Walsh said.“We’re creating revenue, we’re connecting the city, creating green space, open space, and it’ll help again, much like when City Hall was built in the ’60s, allow us an economic engine for that neighborhood,” he said.

Yay, I hope that happens because that disgusting thing is a poor example of brutalism in my opinion (overly busy and oppressive, there are much nicer brutalist buildings that are tasteful) and they demolished historic structures to build that thing. The facade is horrific. The best brutalist buildings are simple and not overly busy as concrete is too heavy a material to be trying to get all fancy with.

Any politician or developer who helps demolish and redevelop Government Center will be held as highly as Paul Revere, Sam Adams, or JFK in Boston.

South End's Ink Block Mega-Project Adds Condos



Quote:
Time was the six-building complex on the old Boston Herald site was to be 6 acres of rental apartments and tens of thousands of square feet of retail, including a Whole Foods, and that was that.

Now the mega-project will include an 83-unit, eight-story condo building at Traveler Street and Harrison Avenue, a market-driven accompaniment to the 392 apartments slated to go up as well.

Tear it down. It's a horribly ugly building and the plaza is very uninviting, let alone cold, windy and lonely in the winter.

You will regret that later. I visited Boston few weeks ago and It was one of the most incredible building I've seen in this city.

Yeah, go ahead, demolish one of the best known brutalist buildings in the world. You know, because it's not up to date. You totally won't regret it later.
