LSyd, the demo work you see was done for Filene's / Millennium Tower, which will break ground in less than 2 months (625 feet tall):
Very cool. Thanks for the info.
I recall street-viewing Boylston Street at one point, and to my surprise, noticing that the front plaza of the Pru had been filled by a large hotel. Very few times have I noticed the interior of a dense city suddenly become so noticeably narrower! In NYC or Chicago they'll tear down some old 30 floor skyscraper for a new 1000 footer, thus preserving the already existing shadows.
Fear is the mind killer.
