Thought I'd share this view from our apartment in the Dorchester Towers across the street . . . it's raining and they're laying the concrete on the 12th floor. They were doing the same last week through all of the snow, etc. Must be some good OT for these guys! The cement pump/hose is fascinating to watch too! :-)
Also, agree on the comment about context . . . the building is a vast improvement over the blight of the mini strip mall that used to be there. And anything that blocks Lincoln Towers from our view is a big plus . . . but looking at the block as a whole, with Citibank and the old Library/Synagogue for bookends, amidst the oddity of the new Synagogue (which took 5 years to complete, btw -- what a mess that was look at it!), it just doesn't feel cohesive at ALL. Oh well. Maybe in a couple of years I'll be able to afford to live there, and then won't have to look at it everyday.
