I won’t believe anything will rise here until I see a tower crane. However, I am worried that they will lock in the current design by constructing its foundation.


#284

That’s not the case with 2 WTC though.


#285

Today


#286

Hopefully they sell it to Related, who will add it to the master plan with thoughtful architecture.

Probably too good a plot to give up, but there may not be any demand for awhile.


#287

This will rise when 2 WTC does (i.e., in 20 years).


#288

A few days ago I spoke to a worker on the site: He told me they were going to finish the foundation, but he had no idea what was happening after that. A finished foundation doesn’t lock in a design, it just limits the structural potential for a new design.

Boston props is not going to sit on this for even 5 years Robert. It might sit fallow like 30 park place for a few years, especially if there is an economic downturn. In any case, once the buildings under construction in the area are occupied there’s going to be a vibrancy and pace to the neighborhood that will make it irresistible.


#289

This will be built ASAP. Boston Properties doesn’t mess around. Will rise in 2019.


#290

BP isn’t building it on spec. No one would even finance it.


#291

Unless they change it to residential and try to beat HY2 out of the gate, I don’t see any demand for this tower. There’s still 50 HY, The Spiral, and 2MW in this immediate area alone.


#292

I agree. 50 HY and the Spiral have millions of SF available.


#293

#294

Amazing to think we’re going to get three more roughly 300 m towers to the already massive west side area.


#295

This tower is terrible and there’s already WAY too much blue glass in this area.


#296

We could use some terracotta/darker towers over there. The tower going up on Williams(?) is what I want to see more of.


#297

Still unclear how far they’re going with this


#298


#299


#300

A little progress.

Tectonic


#301

Anyone know what the plan is here?


#302


Hopefully not this
