It is about time somebody started a Boston thread on this forum. Boston actually has its own site called archboston.com That is why there are not many Boston forumers on this site.

Wow. That Shubert development will be very skinny! That lot is so small.

I am also surprised by the W Hotel. I always thought it was rumored to be going into the surface lot where Avery St. dead ends (near the new Ritz). Glad I am wrong as it will be in a much more visible location.

That's the first time I've seen the Filene's proposal. Can't say I like it. It looks somewhat boxy and dated.

Also, can't forget the Apple store.

An interesting comment considering Winthrop Square is 1000', the SST is over 600' and a number are over 400' including Filenes and Russia Wharf.

Great stuff, thanks guys! I'm really excited about the Filene's building, however I think that Winthrop Square is obnoxious and ugly. It will completely ruin the skyline. I would love to see it around South Station instead.
