Most of these new buildings are butt ugly and will show their age quickly. While I love that people are moving back to Boston why cant they build pretty buildings like the one on the harbor with the big arch (Sorry, I forget the name). Now that's a building for the ages, This stuff is uninspired at best too big and ugly at worst.

We also have a real winner on the way, the 685' Millennium Tower, with much more to come

That's what I'm talking about. That building doesn't belong. This architecture is pedestrian and can be found anywhere. Look at the surrounding streetscape and then look at that alien monstrosity. Boston is a beautiful city. Can't Boston architects do some good stuff like the new styles in Berlin, Germany. Very handsome stuff over there. It's modern but has a classical feel.

This 750 footer for downtown was just proposed yesterday


These two were also proposed for the site

First off it's maybe the highest quality cladding I have ever seen for a residential tower. So no, it's not "found anywhere". It's really as good as it gets for a resi. Second of all, it kind of resembles a new version of the John Hancock Tower, as in Boston's current tallest building. (for the last 40 years) You going to tell me that one doesn't belong either? At the end of the day, both towers are reflecting the beautiful city around them.

Yeah, Berlin sure does have some "amazing skyscrapers" there.

Frankly, you could argue that every skyscraper could be built anywhere. Unless we built a giant lighthouse or a 700' cup of clam chowder, any design is not exclusively "Boston". So what? Millennium Tower is turning out great and we are very happy with it over here. If the bottom doesn't drop out, Boston is entering it's largest skyscraper boom in its history, bar-none. We really don't care what you have to say about it. At least we aren't getting the total junk being thrown up willy nilly in Florida. (mostly Miami, yuck, looks 3rd world, while Jacksonville's got nothing going on as far as I know)

The picture of millennium place half built does not do it justice. It is attached to the filenes building which has received a full makeover and it is going to break a decaes old plateau in the skyline. The glass tower is not the only part of this they integrated it with a beautiful remnant from Bostons past. This is going to blend old with new at street level with a beautiful tower rising above it all.










This is also already under construction





And these are soon after













and about 20 more already under construction or proposed.

I found out that I am moving to Boston for the summer, so it looks like I know what my weekends will be filled with. Photo update adventures!

@boss-ton What/where is that last render? I haven't seen it elsewhere on these forums; it's pretty nifty looking.
