NU prof’s rendering shows ‘visual consequences’ of proposed Harbor Square
BostInno - 11/12/2014
Developer Don Chiofaro has been trying to overwhelm city officials and the public by pitching dramatic, never-before-imagined plans for the Boston Waterfront. Chiofaro’s $1 billion Harbor Square proposal, which would have dual towers rise from a Boston Harbor parcel currently occupied by an unsightly garage, has excited many; it’s also drawn the ire of residents of the neighboring Harbor Towers condos, who overwhelmingly oppose the project.
The digital rendering above, created by Northeastern School of Architecture professor and directorGeorge Thrush, attempts to put into context the impact of Harbor Square – if it were to be completed, that is. As seen from South Boston’s Fan Pier site, the rendering specifically highlights the height of the proposed skyscrapers and their proximity to the water (and condo towers).
