Wow could they push back any further? It's like they're trying to see how far they can push the city before being kicked off the project.


Mini-update until an enormous one at the end of this week:

Thanks for pointing that out, similarly never noticed that til now. That has the potential to look amazing. So sad that the Broad isn't the most interesting new building in that part of town.

Seriously. And who the hell decided that stapling a Tron light cycle path on the side of a building makes an interesting design element? Throw that into the same dumpster where those stupid Ava-style stapled on bookshelves should go.

I'm pretty sure that blue line just hasn't been cladded yet, and won't end up being blue in the finished design.

Must we again???

I was reading the convention center expansion white paper and it talked about how it will make more money because the parking spaces they own will be more valuable because all the surface lots around it are being destroyed. The convention center redo will actually have more parking because of how valuable it is becoming. I just wish it was a 10 story parking garage.
